Mexican Shredded Beef


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.
