This is an adaptation of a recipe from the Food Network, and is absolutely delicious! Time includes crock pot cook time, but you could also do this on the stove.

  1. Combine all ingredients (except those for serving) and place in a crock pot.
  2. Cook on high for one hour and then switch to low for an additional 4-6 hours - time could be different depending on how hot your crock pot cooks. (This could easily be cooked on the stove as well).
  3. At this point I like to break the meat up with a large spoon so that it is more or less "shredded".
  4. Serve with cilantro, yogurt or sour cream and tortillas (and a spoon!).
