Perhaps Corned Beef and Cabbage isn’t your favorite, but you still want to get into the St. Patty’s Day spirit with some delicious Irish food. If so, you definitely need to make these tacos. They are super easy, and even our 2 year old loved them (minus the sauerkraut!).
If you love a good Reuben, you’ll love these tacos!
Sadly, I didn’t take any pictures of the ingredients as my husband was in charge of making these tacos. He has talked about these tacos FOREVER, as an old co-worker used to make them 10 years ago. And, this was the first year I finally gave in and agreed to make them.
All I had to do was put the meat in the crockpot and make the sauce, but he did all the shredding! Other than that, the recipe is really easy. Your hands on time is less than 30 minutes, although you need more time for the corned beef to cook.

Swiss Cheese, shredded
Kraft Creamy Horseradish Sauce
White Corn Taco Shells (Any hard taco shells will do)
Recipe from my husband’s co-worker, Pam Haugseth
Cook the corned beef as directed on package. (We cooked the meat in the crockpot for about 4.5 hours on low). Once cooked, shred the meat. Thin the horseradish sauce with some of the juice from the cooked beef. You’ll want the sauce to be thin so that it can spread evenly over the mixture.
Layer taco with beef, sauerkraut, cheese, and sauce.
Serves 2-4 people. (Our meat didn’t go as far as we thought it would, we had a little leftover, but not much!)
My Tips: The finished taco looks a little scrawny to me. After we had our first one, I went back and put a second layer of all the ingredients. To make all the ingredients even more blended, and be sure to get a taste of everything in each bite, I’d recommend mixing all the ingredients into one bowl and using that as the stuffing for the taco meat.
I hope you enjoy these tacos as much as we did. I know this will be our new St. Patty’s Day tradition, and we will likely cook them throughout the year as well.
