Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef on flour tortilla with cilantro, cheese, and avocado with a side of fresh salsa.

Have you ever walked into a Mexican restaurant and been so overwhelmed by the choices? Like, literally, there can dozens and dozens of meats and “plates” to choose from.

This is why my family loves Chipotle. It may not be the BEST mexican, but dang if it isn’t simple to place an order.

Want tacos? Done. Want carnitas? You got it. Barbacoa? Wait. What? 

What is Barbacoa?

In Mexican cooking, Barbacoa refers to shredded beef. Seasoned to perfection, it’s the “pulled pork” of the beef family.

And my recipe makes it so easy for you to make this at home!
