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

My family liked this. We think it was even better the next day. I used a chuck roast and thought it took longer to become tender. I also thickened the juices to a thin gravy consistency. I will make this again.

This made wonderful burritos! I used a chuck roast as I didn't have a rump roast and it was great.
