How to make it

  • Heat the olive oil in a large kettle that has a tight fitting lid. Brown the beef roast on all sides. Add water to cover and add all ingredients above the line...garlic, chipoltes, chili powder, cayenne, sea salt and pepper, oregano, cumin, celery salt, achiote powder and lime. Squeeze the lime wedges into the cooking liquid. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to a simmer for about 3 hours or so or until beef is easy to shred with 2 forks. Shred beef.
  • Place shredded beef into a skillet and add the reserved cooking liquid a small amount at a time until beef stops absorbing it. Discard remaining liquid.
  • Add the ingredients below the line except tortillas, onions, cilantro and salsa. Simmer this mixture for about 15 minutes or until flavors are combined.
  • Combine onions and cilantro, set aside.
  • Heat tortillas in oven, over charcoal or on a burner. Charred tortillas taste the best.
  • Place a small amount of meat in each tortilla , top with onion/cilantro mixture and then top with salsa.

    Hmmm. . . I have a roast in the freezer I've been putting off making . . . this sounds like a plan. Hubby would be sooooo impressed! Sounds good.

    sounds great! I would probably try this with pork too using a good pork roast and lots of limes on the side. Thanks for the recipe. Sounds like a winner! Deb
