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.

How to Make Mexican style BBQ Sandwiches


  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!
