DIRECTIONS

  • I have a 2 pound roast so the directions will vary due to weight. (1 packet of seasoning per pound, 1 TBS of cooking oil per pound, 1 TBS of apple cider vinegar per pound).
  • I put 2 cups of water in my crock pot and put the 2 packets of Ortega chipotle taco seasoning in and whisked. Then I added 2 TBS of cooking oil, 2 TBS of apple cider vinegar, and a dash of hot sauce and whisked again.
  • I placed the roast into a large skillet and seared both sides then placed in crock pot.
  • Set the crock pot to low setting and let it slow cook from 7am to 5:30pm while I was gone to work for the day. The meat just fell apart when trying to remove it from the crock pot. Removed meat from crock pot and shredded with fork on cutting board and placed in serving dish. Cook time I would say 8 hours minimum on a low setting and less time for higher settings.
  • We added tortillas, lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, salsa, and sour cream to garnish. These were delicious and pretty darn close to the real deal. Depending on what size tortillas you use and how much meat you put into them determines how many servings this will make.
