    Lavender Lynn's Note:

    This is great shredded beef served on tortillas or over rice. Add sour cream, cheese, and fresh cilantro on the side. This recipe is from All Recipes.

      This dish is delicious!!! Made it for dinner tonight. My meat and potatoes husband loved it! Served it with most excellent mexican rice and pico de gallo on the side. This one is a keeper. Thanks for the great recipe.

      Great crockpot recipe! We found this to be great as is, wrapped in a tortilla, or even served over rice! Thank you for posting a very simple, easy dish that everyone from my 18 month old all the way up to the adults could enjoy! I didn't find this dish spicy at all which is great because I can't stand spicy hot things. Made for ZWT5.
