Crock Pot Mahaca Beef

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by beckerd

The outcome of this recipe is shredded meat that you can use in place of regular ground beef taco meat. This is a really good Mexican recipe that I got from a friend. I usually serve it shredded as burritos. I've also used chicken in place of the beef and it turned out really good.

WOW. This was absolutely terrific. used a blade roast and also just 1/4 cup hot sauce. Interestingly it seemed wildly hot as i tasted when it had cooked 6 hours but actually the heat level when shredded was lower. Still a good bite though. Will be saving the leftovers in freezer bags to use for burritos, tacos etc. Great recipe. Pic to follow bc i ate my dinner so fast :)
