Spicy Shredded Beef

Another AWESOME new recipe I just tried.  Just enough heat but not too much for little ones.  Perfect for a large crowd.

Spicy Shredded Beef
3-4 pound chuck roast, trimmed
1/3 cup vinegar
1/4 cup lime juice
1 can Hot Rotel (you can use Original or Mild if you like less heat)
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons cumin
2 teaspoons oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup chicken broth
3 bay leaves

Place roast in crockpot.
Combine all ingredients except the chicken broth and bay leaves into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Pour sauce over roast. Add chicken broth and bay leaves.
Cook on high for 6 hours or on low 8-10 hours. Once meat is tender, shred with two forks right into the sauce in the crockpot.

 Perfect for tacos, burritos, salad or nachos! 
Don't forget all the good stuff...cheese, sour cream, homemade salsa, lettuce, olives, etc!
