  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

Non-stick cooking spray
2½ lbs. beef chuck roast
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
½ medium yellow onion, diced
1 medium jalapeno, thinly sliced
1½ t. ground cumin
1 t. garlic powder
½ t. smoked paprika
½ t. chipotle powder
1 t. dried Mexican oregano
1 10-oz. can tomatoes with green chilies
1 c. beef stock
1 T. fresh lime juice


Instructions

Spray the bottom and sides of 6-quart slow-cooker crock with non-stick cooking spray. Generously season the beef with salt and pepper on all sides and place in slow cooker crock. Add all remaining ingredients, cover, and cook on low for 8 hours.
When done cooking, remove the lid and shred beef with two forks while still inside the slow cooker.
Allow shredded beef to marinate in warm cooking juices for 5 minutes to absorb more flavor. Transfer shredded beef from slow cooker to a serving platter with tongs, allowing excess liquid to drain.
Top with chopped cilantro and serve immediately with fresh lime wedges and additional cooking juices on the side, if desired.
Enjoy!
