    Nif's Note:

    Popular throughout Central America, salpicón is a refreshing salad that is great as a topping for tostadas or wrapped in fresh corn tortillas. It is especially easy to make in large quantities for parties and family gatherings. This version uses vinegar while the Mexican version tends to include lime juice. Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Add the beef, onion and salt to a large pot and add water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until meat is very tender.

      This was an awesome recipe! Super easy and could make all of the rest of dinner while the meat simmered. We topped it with cotija cheese and ate on mini tortillas. Everyone loved it!
