Many of you know how my family is big fans of Mexican food. I have so many yummy recipes you think I would be covered. I don’t think I can ever have too many. This is another one that is made in the slow cooker so it is so easy to make. The result is a very moist and flavorful shredded beef that is perfect for any Mexican dish – tacos, burritos, tostadas, salads etc.
I managed to get two meals out of one recipe. I made tacos one time, then put the leftover meat in the freezer for another time. The next meal I made tostadas. Both were fabulous. I want to make burritos with this meat next time, I really think they will taste spectacular.
