Excellent as written !!! I have made this twice and the first time made it exactly as written but felt it needed just a little more spice. So the second time I added the following to the recipe: Used 1.5 cups of cola instead of beer (really like the flavor of the cola better), 1 cup of beef bouillon (used the cube and disolved it in hot water), a couple shakes of cumin, ancho chili powder and crushed red pepper flakes, 15 oz can diced tomatos, 3/4 can diced green chilis (dont like chopping my own jalapinos) and 2 cinnamon sticks (cinnamon gives it a more traditional mexican flavor). Rubbed the dry ingrediants on top of a 3.5 pound chuck roast put the roast in the crock pot then dumped all the wet ingrediants in the crock pot. The liquid did just cover the roast which helps prevent the meat from drying out, left the slow cooker on low for about 11 hours, took the meat out and shredded it with 2 forks. I then spooned some of the liquid from the crock pot over the meat. I decided to make quesadillas with cheese served them with sour cream on top and it was out of this world good. This recipe is a keeper and probably the best one on this site for shredded beef (Ive tried a few). Thanks for sharing and enjoy !!!
