What's For Dinner? {easy crockpot barbacoa}

A few weeks ago I shared this super easy, crowd pleasing recipe over at Blissful And Domestic. It's so unbelievably delicious, that I just had to share with y'all...........

Summertime means, laid back and easy peasy, and it also means using my crockpot as often as possible so I don't heat up the house with the oven. This is one of my favorite recipes for easy barbacoa. If you're wondering, what's barbacoa, let me tell you........ it's a way of cooking meat, pork or beef, that can be shredded and used to make the most delicious tacos ever. Top them off with a little fresh cilantro and chopped onion, oh my, deliciousness. This is a really great recipe for summer gatherings as it serves a crowd really well. Your friends and family will rave, I promise!


3 lb. pork or beef roast
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 chipotles in adobo sauce, chopped
1 [4 ounce] can chopped green chiles
1 small white onion chopped
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
3 bay leaves
1 Tbsp. ground cumin
1 Tbsp. oregano
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 cup water


Combine all ingredients in your slow cooker and stir gently to combine. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.  Meat should be falling apart when done. Allow to cool slightly and using two forks, pull meat apart to shred or if you're like me, dive in with your hands and pull that meat apart! Toss meat with the juices and allow to soak for about ten minutes before serving. Serve with corn or flour tortillas, chopped onion, fresh chopped cilantro and sour cream. Delicious! Enjoy y'all!
