I originally made this back in 2006 and realized I never blogged about it. oops! You can’t go wrong with a good crockpot recipe! Make your summer evenings more enjoyable and less fuss making dinner. This is a great recipe to make and after you shred the meat you can freeze it to use in tacos or enchiladas later on. It also makes a great flavorful stuffed potato.

Season roast with salt and pepper and set aside

Mix dry spices together (chili powder, cumin, paprika) and rub over both sides of roast

Place roast in your slow cooker along with the garlic, onion and peppers

Combine remaining ingredients (tomato paste, beef stock, lime juice) and pour over beef

Cook on Low (8-10 hours) or High (4-6 hours) – meat should be tender and pull apart easily

Shred meat with a fork and return to slow cooker. Mix shredded meat with the juices remaining in the slow cooker
