Crock Pot Beef Carnitas Tacos

I have made this recipe twice now, and will be making it again soon.  I LOVE good crock pot meals and really love it when they make enough to have a second night!  I'm so glad I found this on Eat, Live, Run.  If you want an easy, yummy meal, make this soon!
Crock Pot Beef Carnitas Tacos
2 pounds flank steak
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped  (I accidentally picked up a yellow pepper)
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
For spice rub:
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
For serving:
corn tortillas 
sour cream
Mix together all of the spice rub ingredients in a small bowl.
 Rub the spices over the flank steak and place in the bottom of the crock pot.
 Cover the steak with the jalapeno pepper, bell peppers, and onion.  Turn the crock pot on low and cook for 8 hours.
 After 8 hours, shred the meat with a fork.  It will literally fall apart.  You can continue to cook it for another hour, or go ahead and serve it.  Heat the tortillas in a skillet over the stove and serve with the toppings of your choice.
These are SO good!! Enjoy.  :)
