Here’s our favorite way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo: Consume as many tacos as humanly possible in the shortest amount of time. This year, the holiday falls on a “Taco Tuesday,” which makes this plan a no-brainer. You can whip up this shredded chicken taco recipe right in your slow cooker, and you’ll be ready for a delicious fiesta in your own apartment in just a few hours.
