    This is the BEST recipe if you want to show off some of those Mexican cooking skills and impress your friends. Warning: It is super spicy HOT! I did not use a crockpot. Baked in a Dutch oven at 350 degrees for 3hrs. Probably was done after 2hrs, but it was fine and the meat fell apart. I didn’t have any serrano peppers. Used Hatch green chiles and jalapenos. It was plenty flavorful after shredding so I did not add the cumin and paprika at the end. For more on this review, see “I Made It II:” Machaca Beef Date: 9/5/2018

    This is what we get for breakfast every Sunday at the veggie market in a soft tortilla. Danny won't let me see what the cooking area looks like (ha,ha).
