Want to know how to make the perfect shreddable beef for all your favorite Mexican foods (tacos, burritos, salads, enchiladas, nachos, quesadillas, etc.)? I will tell you. And you’re going to be happy, because it is sooooo easy and only takes 2 ingredients plus (hands off) time in the slow cooker.
First you get the right cut of meat. This is an important step. You go to the grocery store and you look in the beef section for “chuck roast” or “chuck eye roast.” If I watch the store ads I can usually get it on sale for $3.99 a pound. Then you cut off any excess pieces of fat on the roast and stick the roast in the bottom of your slow cooker.
you can also use drained canned corn)
totally use sharp cheddar if you prefer)
before if you’d like. Cut off excess fat from the beef. Place beef in a slow cooker. In a small bowl whisk
together the water and the seasoning mix. Pour over the beef. Cover the slow
cooker and cook on LOW for 8-12 hours (depends on each slow cooker). The meat
should be very tender and easy to shred. If it’s not, it needs to cook longer.
Shred the meat and stir it back in with all the juices in the slow cooker. You
can use this meat for these nachos or plenty of other recipes! Think salads,
enchiladas, burritos, tacos, etc.
inch pans. Divide the chips between the two pans. Spread the chips out evenly.
Drain the can of beans and dump the beans into a medium bowl. Add the picante
sauce, lime juice and corn into the bowl. Stir to combine. Divide the meat that
you made previously over the top of the nachos and then scoop the bean mixture
over the top of the meat.
minutes or until the bean mixture is heated through. While the casserole is
baking prepare a cheese sauce. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium
heat. Blend in the flour, salt and pepper. When the mixture is bubbly, quickly
add in the milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and bubbles.
Remove from heat and add the cheese, stirring until smooth.
