Crockin' Good Shredded Jalapeno Beef Roast

Diane Atherton


Don't let the jalapeno scare you, it's not hot, maybe just a little spicy but its a mild heat.

So much you can do with this shredded meat! Use in a salad, fold up in a warm tortilla, make taco's, burrito's, enchiladas or make a gravy and serve over rice or mashed taters!

Make several different meals during the week and no one will be the wiser that you didn't slave in the kitchen all day.

Hope you enjoy and find many uses for this shredded roast.
