Beef Barbacoa is slow-cooked until fork-tender, with a smoky aroma and spicy taste. Shredded beef braised in a blend of chipotle adobo, cumin, cloves, garlic, and oregano...yummy!

Barbacoa Tacos

Barbacoa, Spanish for barbecue, a method of cooking meat that originated in Mexico; the term also can refer to the meat itself.  Some types of barbacoa, however, feature pork or beef, and many modern recipes use a slow cooker, instant pot, or dutch oven. Although the meat can be cooked in its own juices without any seasoning, marinades, and spices are often added during the cooking process. Once the meat is very tender, it is typically shredded or chopped before being served with lime in tortillas or alongside a broth made with drippings from the meat.



How to make Barbacoa Meat

Slow-cooker - Slow cooking takes beef cubes in barbacoa sauce to a juicy melt in your mouth perfection. 
Brown beef cubes in oil in a heavy bottom pan for 5 minutes. Transfer cubes into a slow cooker, add bay leaf and barbacoa sauce, and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-6 hours.

Instant Pot -  Brown beef cubes on Saute mode on Instant Pot, then add Barbacoa sauce, bay leaf, and pressure cook for 50 minutes.





When cooked, remove the bay leaf, and use 2 forks to pull apart meat into bite-size pieces for tacos. Warm corn tortillas, place the meat into a tortilla, top with cheese, diced onion, shredded lettuce. 

Other ways to use the Barbacoa meat recipe

Burritos - Flour tortilla filled with barbacoa meat, rice, cheese, and guacamole.
Rice Bowl - Barbacoa meat, black beans, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole served over a bowl of cilantro-lime rice.
Tostadas - Tostada shells topped with guacamole, barbacoa meat, cheese, and onions.

Red Chile Beef Enchiladas drenched in red sauce, fork-tender beef, and melted Mexican cheese blend, perfect for any meal of the day and guaranteed to set your taste buds on fire!

Red Chile Beef Enchiladas

Tender, slow-cooked shredded beef, and the Mexican cheese blend combination is the heart of this dish.
Enchiladas originated in Mexico, where the practice of rolling tortillas around other food dates back at least to Mayan times. 

How to Make Red Chile Beef Enchiladas

Start this recipe with slow-cooking a chuck roast, until succulently tender. Grab 2 forks, and shred meat.







Dip corn tortilla into red chile sauce (recipe here) place meat and one teaspoon of onions down the center of the tortilla(or place onions on top instead of inside enchiladas). Roll corn tortilla and place each roll into a casserole dish. Traditionally, I use corn tortillas for enchiladas, but flour tortillas can be used for enchiladas.


    Cover enchiladas with sauce, top with cheese and onions. 
      Place casserole dish in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 350° F degrees.




      Top Enchiladas with your favorite topping...guacamole, lettuce, Cotija cheese, and tomatoes, or Mexican Crema. Enjoy!
