Barbacoa Tacos
Barbacoa is spicy shredded Mexican beef that goes great in tacos. This recipe uses the slow cooker to make things super simple and quick. A beef roast is cut into chunks and then placed into the slow cooker with numerous ingredients. A lot of the spice in this recipe comes from chipotle in adobo sauce. If you want to up the heat, just add even more chipotle in adobo. Additionally, a lot of flavor comes from lime juice and cider vinegar. I like to serve this shredded beef on tacos with guacamole and cheese. Enjoy.
