Do you own a pressure cooker? My Crock Pot Express is arguably one of my best impulse buys of 2018. I can’t get over how easy it is to use and clean!

For example, I included a slaw that combined Trader Joe’s cruciferous blend, cilantro, unflavored Greek yogurt, lime juice, and more Sriracha. Think about what you typically like on a taco, and customize the recipe from there!
