3 pounds sirloin, stew beef, or whatever is lean
and on sale
1 package taco seasoning mix
water to cover
cheddar cheese -- shredded

Leave meat in whole pieces; you may even put it in frozen.
In the morning, put the meat into the crockpot, add taco seasoning mix, and
water. Plug it in and turn it on simmer according to manufacturer's
If you have time in the morning, shred the cheese and lettuce and chop the
tomatoes and store in ziplock or Rubbermaid containers in the refrigerator.
When meat is cooked, remove with slotted spoon to a platter and allow to
cool enough to handle. Place chicken breasts or beef on cutting board, and
using a fork, shred the meat, while discarding any pieces of fat, etc, that
you find. Return shredded meat to crockpot. Warm refried beans in small
sauce pan or microwave. Wrap tortillas in foil and warm in the oven. Put
remaining ingredients out in dishes on table (or counter) and holler
"DINNER!!!" very loudly. The diners can put together their own soft tacos
or burritos with the ingredients they like best.
