Slow Cooker It’s-Just-Like-Chipotle’s-Spicy-Barbacoa

Chipotle is about the only fast food that I will eat because the meats and dairy are hormone-free, they try to use as much fresh organic local produce as possible, and it tastes so good! The spicy barbacoa beef is my favorite and is perfect for cooking in a slow cooker. I searched the internet for ideas of how to recreate Chipotle’s fantastic shredded beef and ended up with this version that is pretty outstanding. Mission accomplished!

Slow Cooker Fajitas

Fajitas were originally made with skirt steak, hence, the name fajita coming from faja or “belt”. Texas ranch hands have been making them since the 1930s and the dish’s popularity is still evident in every Mexican or Tex Mex restaurant in the U.S. Skirt steak is tough and typically marinated overnight for tenderness prior to grilling, but the slow cooker automatically takes care of transforming the meat to a tender, flavorful base for this meal.

Slow Cooker Tacos

I am almost embarrassed to include this; it’s so easy, it’s shameful! This is my have-one-second-to put-a-meal-in-the-slow-cooker dinners. Not only can I make the taco meat in a split second and forget it all day, but everyone loves making and eating tacos! It’s such a fun meal to eat with others.
