Are you ready for the big game day party?

Here’s a delicious recipe for crockpot al pastor taco boats that are sure to be a hit with your family or guests.

We are massive football fans and at this point I have hosted so many football parties that I have officially lost count. This year I am hosting a party just teenagers.

I am making an assortment of appetizers and sweets, but my goal is to contain the mess and stop food waste. To do this I am serving multiple things in Old El Paso Mini Soft Taco boats. The boats are perfect for teens, tweens, and kids, because it essentially holds in all the filling. So it’s a taco, but it’s less mess because it’s a taco boat. You can buy these Old El Paso taco boats at your local WalMart.

In order to save time and make more than one thing at a time I am utilizing my crockpot. In addition to this crockpot al pastor taco boat recipe I will be making crockpot chili verde and crockpot refried beans.
