It was quite a thing to have my sweet Mexican brother in law “knight” me as half-Mexican!

He, my sister, and their family were at our home visiting once and I decided to make these Shredded Beef Burritos.

I made them without thinking, because pretty sure if I had thought about it, I would not have made them.

You know, afraid that I would be judged … “little Cammi over here from Utah trying to make Mexican food!????  Bless her heart.”

I can hear him saying that. 😉

However, to my surprise, I got a completely different reaction!

He immediately asked that I send my sister (his wife) the recipe.

The deliciously seasoned beef is what makes these great! Cooking is slowly for 8-10 hours makes it irresistibly tender and mouth-watering.

I am not yet on the instant pot craze but I’m sure you could do that if you wanted.

I put mine in the crockpot at 6:00 am so that it was ready to shred at 2:00 when we got home from church.  The crockpot I use can be found HERE.

I used a rump roast just because I’m not a fan of chuck, but you could use either.

Throw the shredded beef back into those delicious juices for another 30 minutes.  Then drain the meat, wrap it in a tortilla, and add plenty of homemade guac, tomatoes, sour cream. and monterey jack cheese.  There you have it!

Delicious shredded beef burritos that anybody would love!

Serve it with a side of chips and salsa, and you’ll think you’ve died and gone to Mexico!
