Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat
April 08, 2003

I have to VERY much agree with the reviewer who called this 'atomic beef'. My husband and I both enjoy spicy foods, and were especially looking forward to a spicy meal since we were both having bad allergy days and could use a little spice to clear out our sinuses. Well, once I shredded up this roast, we tasted it and threw it out. If you got a piece from the middle, it had NO taste whatsoever, and if you happened to get a piece from the outside, it was SO hot it burned your head off...and is still burning the inside of my stomach. This recipe is the same idea as all those stupid BBQ sauces that try to be hot just for the sake of being hot. There needs to be layers of FLAVOR in spicy food, not just 'burn your tongue' hot sensations. Definitely will NEVER make again, and would not recommend...and for those who are wondering, I had about a 3 pound roast, and I used about 3 oz. of tabasco sauce, 1/2 of the chili powder, 1/2 of the cayenne, added some cumin (just cause I love cumin), and threw a couple of veggie boullion cubes in with the water.
