    This is something a friend used to make for me and I can't get enough of it. Super easy to make too! This is a mexican meat that can be used in tacos, burritos etc...

      easy and delicious to make filling for tacos and burritos. The taste really depends on the salsa you use- we like Pace Chipotle!

      Wow, this turned out SO well. Yummy and easy, what more can you want. I also shredded the meat after about 8 hours, corrected the seasonings, as I had underseasoned, and let it go another couple of hours. Thanks, Kristen!

      Oh my goodness, this is wonderful! I used six round steaks instead of a roast (after asking the chef if it would work) and I am very impressed by the results. After nine hours of cooking, I took the meat out and shredded it, put it back in the juices in the crockpot and cooked it again for another 90 minutes while we went to soccer practice. This made wonderful tacos and we tons left over to make burritos, chimi's, etc. My son dubbed this better than the machaca we like at our local mexican restaurant. Thanks for sharing!
