Hot and Spicy Slow Cooker Beef

    10 hours 20 minutes

    This is a Mexican recipe for making an incredibly tender flaked beef. It takes quite a bit of time to make, but the slow cooker does all the work and it's well worth the wait. It's great on tortillas, in sandwiches and even in soup.

    Most excellent. It made fabulous burritos.  -  07 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this for a staff lunch today and everyone loved it!! It also had an added bonus - the smell of it cleared everyone's sinuses. It did have a kick to it, but the only ones who complained where the ones who had it plain. It needs to be served on bread of some kind. It takes a little bit of work to make, but it's worth it!  -  02 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was an EASY, delicious recipe! I have searched for a shredded beef recipe for years, and now I've found it. I used a smaller roast... about 3 lbs, and cooked overnight. I used mine to make enchiladas. The spicing was just right. Muy Bueno!  -  15 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
