Sweet & Spicy Slow Cooker Beef Tacos

Warmer days are here but that doesn't mean it's time to put away the slow cooker.  Definitely an all-year-round appliance for me,  I especially like to cook with it during summer months.  Delicious meals simmer away without heating up the house.  These Sweet & Spicy Beef Tacos are a great weeknight meal to come home to after a long work day.  It's also a great recipe for summer entertaining that doesn't keep you chained to the grill.
