Whenever there is roast on sale there is a pot of mexican meat on the stove. Freezes very well. We can eat on it for a couple of days. Whatever is left over I package in a suitable size that my husband can pull out of the freezer and make himself soft tacos. This is a recipe from Make-A-Mix cookbook. I have used it for several years.
