When you’re busy and have kids, making sure your meals are probiotic-rich might not be at the top of the list. In the past, I mostly worried if my child had enough protein and fiber in their day -and so do most of the parents in my 100k+ parent community.
However, we have all heard and read about how beneficial probiotics can be for adults, and research shows that it can be very beneficial for kids as well. That said, if you’re considering probiotics for your child, make sure to speak to your pediatrician first.

What are Street Tacos?
I’m so glad you asked!
You’ll find this type of tacos most often in street carts or food trucks, hence the name for these tacos, Food Truck Tacos or Street Tacos. They are the closest thing to authentic Mexican tacos. Since they’re smaller in size, it makes inhaling 3 or 4 at a time perfectly acceptable -just sayn’. After having tons of food truck tacos in Austin one weekend, I knew I’d have to create my own version for the Taco Tuesday Coobook!
Authentic Mexican Street Tacos Recipe
Unlike the standard American taco which comes in a crunchy shell with ground beef, street tacos are served in small corn tortillas filled with seasoned and grilled smoked chicken, pork, or carne asada; then they’re topped with lime and a sprinkle of cheese.
The meat is marinated and cooked on the grill or slow smoked until it falls of the bone and melts in your mouth.
Sometimes, these street tacos are served with a crunchy slaw or a drizzle of sauce; but for the most part, these tacos are kept simple so you can zone in on all the flavors!
It can be challenging to find these epic tacos from a food truck for a delicious midweek dinner; so I’m bringing these tacos to you thanks to the Taco Tuesday Cookbook and your favorite kitchen assistant: the slow cooker.
These street tacos are filled with flavor and are super easy to make so you can “set it and forget it” and enjoy street style tacos, any day, anytime.
How to Make Food Truck Tacos at Home
Since these are going down in the slow cooker, we need a sauce, and this recipe includes blended chipotle peppers, BBQ sauce, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, garlic, cumin, and salt.
Once you blend the sauce, the smell alone is enough to wake up your senses and anticipate how amazing these tacos are going to be.
Making them is easy because all you do is combine the pork and sauce inside the slow cooker, cook on low for 10 hours or high for 6. You should know that the longer you cook the meat on low heat, the more tender the meat will be.
Once the meat shreds easily between two forks, just toss it around with the sauce inside the slow cooker and you’ll be ready to assemble.
