3lb brisket, cut into several pieces
half a large yellow onion, diced
1 cup water
taco seasoning (I made my own! The recipe is at the end.)
1 small can of diced green chilies
taco shells or tortillas
red onion, diced
cholula or your favorite hot sauce
I started by dicing half a yellow onion. I put half of the diced onion in the bottom of the crock pot, put the meat on top of it, then put the rest of the onion on top of the meat. I dumped in the can of diced green chilies, then mixed the taco seasoning with the cup of water and put that in. I turned my crock pot on to low, then I went to work! The meat was frozen and too large to fit in the crock pot as it was, so I chopped it into five smaller pieces and shoved it in.
When I got home the whole house smelled great, and this is what the meat looked like...
As I shredded each hunk of beef, I placed it in another pan on the stove to keep it all warm...
I warmed up some hard taco shells in the oven and served the meat and shells with an assortment of toppings...
There was some leftover meat, so I'm going to freeze it and use it for enchiladas or burritos some time soon.
