Mexican-Style Pot Roast Filling


Mexican-Style Pot Roast Filling

My son's friends always requested this recipe when they came over and are still talking about it more than a decade later! The meat absorbs the juices which gives a fantastic taste. It is perfect as a filling for tacos, burritos or enchiladas and freezes well. —Connie Dicavoli, Shawnee, Kansas
