READY IN: 7hrs 20mins
Recipe by Pam Blackburn

This is a combination of several recipes over the years. After several attempts this is what developed. Everyone I know who has tried it loved it, I hope you do also.

This meat is just what I've been looking for to use in Mexican dishes. We love it! I used taco seasoning and salsa (instead of fajita and diced tomatoes). I also omitted the green chilies. I have used it in tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. It tastes great in all of them. Putting the shredded meat back in the sauce was an amazing and critical step to retaining moisture and flavor. :D
