Shredded beef is one of the most versatile essentials in Mexican cuisine. We use shredded beef to make tacos, enchiladas, on tostadas, on salads, and so much more.

It’s like a two-for-one deal: you get pot roast one night and a “shredded beef” dish the next day! This Mexican style slow cooker pot roast is a an amazingly flavorful and easy meal for busy families.

5. Tacos Al Pastor
I served mine up street-taco-style, with fresh chopped cilantro, onions, and a few lime wedges. And since I had some pineapple leftover, I also tossed in a few tidbits. (Fresh, mind you. Resist any temptation to use canned pineapple in this recipe. Resist!)

9. Chicken Burrito Bowls
This is my absolute favorite kind of slow cooker recipe — one that takes less than five minutes to pull together and then rewards you with a delicious, healthy dinner at the end of the day. These burrito bowls are full of chili-spiced brown rice, black beans, corn, and yes, tender bites of shredded chicken. Everything gets cooked right in the pot, so all you need to do is dish yourself a bowl and sprinkle with cheese.
10. Pork Stew
One of my husband’s all-time favorite dishes is Carne Guisada, which is a mexican stew. It is packed with flavor, comforting and just plain delicious. However, about a year ago he had to cut beef out of his diet so I started looking for a way to make this dish so he could still enjoy it. In comes the pork. Pork is so tender and succulent, and works beautiful with these flavors. I think this might even be better than beef! Eeeek!

13. Carne Asada
Traditionally, Grilled Carne Asada is all about the marinade. In this slow cooker version, I’ve taken my regular marinade and turned it into a sauce that is full of flavor. The steak is then smothered in the sauce and slow cooked to perfection. While certainly a non-traditional option, it makes a great “set it and forget it” meal.

18. Pork Chile Verde
Chile verde is more than a simple stew. Pork shoulder is rendered into supple, tender meat after a slow simmer in a sauce of roasted tomatillos, peppers, cilantro, and oregano. The resulting meat and sauce can be poured over rice or tucked into a tortilla. While the salsa verde requires a little prep work up front, the rest of the cooking is hands-off, thanks to the trusty slow cooker. This is a perfect dish to perfume your house when the weather gets crisp this fall.

21. Mexican Street Corn Chowder
That logic inspired this recipe, which combines traditional corn chowder with spicy Mexican-inspired flavors to create what basically became soup-style Mexican street corn. It’s a recipe you’re going to want to make when you’ve got access to all of that fresh, sweet summer corn, or in the winter when you’re craving a bowl of something comforting and creamy. You might even find yourself craving it when you’re stuck sitting in a hot car. I’m telling you, it’s a recipe you’re going to want all the time.

22. SMOTHERED BEEF BURRITOS
The key to making awesome smothered burritos is tender, shredded beef and a thick, flavorful sauce. It might not look too sexy (yeah, I know) but let me tell you, it is hard to resist eating all of the beef straight from the pot before it ever makes it to a tortilla.

23. Ancho Coffee Shredded Beef
I’ll tell you right up front, the ingredients might sound somewhat strange, seeing as they include everything from chile powder to coffee granules, beer to balsamic vinegar, and maple syrup to garlic. Your grocery shopping list might be a liiiittle all over the place. However, it’s actually this huge range of flavors that makes this shredded beef unforgettable. Sweet, spicy, smoky, tangy, rich, and juicy. More than the sum of its parts.

24. Taco Chicken Bowls
Taco Chicken Bowls are great for bachelors, students, or the chronically busy because it’s a “dump and heat” recipe. All you do is dump all of the ingredients together in a pot, and let it cook. Of course you’ll need to make the rice separate but even if you’re one of those people who can never get rice right, there is still hope. Just stuff the chicken mixture inside of a tortilla with a little cheese and roll it up for a quick burrito, or fold it over in a tortilla and crisp it up in a skillet like a quesadilla. Presto. Easy, delicious, cheap food.

And with the help of your slow cooker, it is an absolute breeze to pull together. Just like classic chicken tinga, this version is cooked in a full-flavored tomato-chipotle sauce, studded with sliced onions, and hit with just enough heat to keep you on your toes.
