Mexican style BBQ Sandwiches

My husband is a huge fan of mexican food and I love pulled pork and beef "barbecue" sandwiches.... so I got to thinking of what I could do to combine the tastes. This is what I came up with and according to my husband it was a home run! Couldn't be easier to make and it's loaded with flavor. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

PART 1

4 lb
chuck steak, lean
1 lb
boneless porkchops. (can use pork shoulder)
2 c
beef broth
1/4 c
balsamic vinegar
1/2 c
dried minced onion
1/4 c
chili powder
2 Tbsp
each dried oregano, tarragon, cumin,garlic powder
1/4 tsp
black pepper

PART 2

1 pkg
taco seasoning mix
1
10 oz can enchilada sauce
1/2 c
chunky salsa
juice of one lime

Directions Step-By-Step

1
cube the steak and chops and place in crockpot with the rest of the part 1 ingredients. Cook on high for 4 - 6 hours or till you can easily shred the meat with a fork.
2
remove the meat and reserve the broth mixture. Once the meat is shredded, put it back in the crockpot with the taco seasoning, enchilada sauce, salsa, lime juice, and about a half cup of the reserved beef broth. Mix well. If needed, add more of the beef broth, about a 1/4 cup at a time till mixture is moist and let simmer on low for about 15- 20 minutes to give meat mixture enough time to absorb flavors.
3
Serve on top of hamburger buns or open faced. If you prefer you can also serve it on taco shells.
4
You can freeze the remaining beef broth and use for other recipes or for a nicely spiced beef gravy - or even use it as part of a base for a southwestern based beef stew. Enjoy!
