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 Mexican shredded beef that is perfect for any dish – tacos, burritos, tostadas, salads etc.

I managed to get two meals out of one recipe of this Mexican Shredded Beef.  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.

  3. I made this last night to use for filling in enchiladas. It was delicious! My husband called the beef addicting, he kept stealing bites out of the crock pot. This is definitely a keeper recipe. Thank you!
