    I also made I box of hard shells for tacos. Cook beef and chicken with some Adobo sprinkled on top in crock-pot for 4 to 5 hours(do not add any liquid), let cool, take chicken off bone and shred chicken and beef. Save all the liquid. Chop all vegetables, garlic, and onions. In large rice pot add olive oil and saute onions and garlic, add in 1 can green chiles, and chopped fresh tomato. Let cook a few minutes and add in all the shredded meat and stir. Add in all the liquid from crock pot, 2 packs of seasonings, and extra seasonings as you like. If you need it, add in a little bit of water. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes. In a separate pot add in the jar of salsa Verde, one small can of tomato sauce, one can green chiles, and tsp of ketchup, heat through. In each tortilla shell put meat mixture and shredded cheese, fold, then place in casserole dish seem side down, Cover burritos with salsa mixture (I also put some of the liquid from the meat mixture on the burritos) and cheese. Bake at 375 degrees until bubbly. Heat taco shells for 7 minutes in oven, make tacos with meat mixture and cheese, and add garnishes to your yummy burritos and tacos.
