Beware! This slow cooker recipe is spicy, but is an excellent shredded beef for tacos, sandwiches, or enchiladas! You can even try it on crusty rolls with the juice in a bowl on the side for dipping for a Mexican-style French dip!

My kids loved this beef I made tacos and they inhaled them! I added a whole can of Chipotle and pickled onions to balance out the flavors. I'm off for the summer so I let the meat go low n slow in the oven from frozen stew meat. This is gonna make Great Machaca to tomorrow morning for sure! Thank you Karie you have a winner here!

Made this recipe twice and both times it was great. I used bottom round the second time and it pulled much easier. Nice and spicy and a great easy grab and go part of most meals! Read More

Great recipe! I followed it exactly but used a bit more broth to get the right coverage in my crockpot and I also used a 7 oz. can of the chopped green chiles. We ate it on corn tortillas with pickled onions cilantro jalapeños and lime. It was a huge hit and the best is there is plenty left over. Super easy to make. Thank you for sharing. Read More

Made my own adobe sauce and used jalapeños in substitution for chipotle peppers. This turned out to be a mild heat compared to what I expected. This would be great for teen children and of course the parents! PS definitely make the pickled onions to go on top. Delish!! Read More

This needs more reviews! It s really good! Has some heat to it. I strained the meat before serving because it leaves a lot of broth but that can be used for a soup later. We ate it with burritos sour cream shredded lettuce tomatoes cheese rice. Read More
