My tips and tricks for Success in this recipe:

  • Always Sear your meat before placing it in the crock pot.  This will help keep the juices of the meat in and ensure a moist and tender meal.
  • You can use this meat in any of your Mexican Favorite Dishes!  I love this for tacos and nachos alike.
