Mexican Shredded Beef Recipe

Preparing Mexican flavored shredded beef in the slow cooker is a great way to make meat for quesadillas, tacos, enchiladas or burritos. This delicious shredded beef gets its flavor from ingredients such as taco seasoning, taco sauce. And beef broth. There is nothing complex about this recipe, the meat and onions are placed into the slow cooker topped with beef broth and taco seasoning. The beef is then shredded and mixed with taco sauce and green chilies. This recipe calls for a 1.5lb boneless chuck roast. What I like to do is get a package of stew meat. The stew meat practically falls apart in the slow cooker and I will use a slotted spoon to break it up even more. I like doing this because you do not have to take the time to shred the beef. If you are looking for a simple and delicious way to make Mexican shredded beef, give this recipe a try. Enjoy!

  1. This looks sooooo… good. I’m always looking for good slowcooker/crockpot recipes. This would be good for anyone gone most of the day at work, or even that works from home and doesn’t have a lot of time to prepare a nice dinner.

    I’m making this recipe at this moment. I would suggest a 2nd pkg of taco seasoning. I used 1 pkg and then made a 2nd batch of homemade taco seasoning. I really think it helps with flavoring the meat. I’m debating on using the taco sauce . I really don’t want to cover up the taste of the yummy meat. Thanks for the recipe! I get tired of the same ol chuck roast crock pot recipe.
