This is a great dish!! I actually just put the meat, onions, water and seasoning packet in the crockpot. I left out the taco sauce. Our whole family loved it - and it was something we could eat all day and night... whenever someone was hungry. The meat was tender - and it was really delicious. I've made it a couple of times and it's a keeper... great the next day too.

I liked this, but next till will not add the green chilis. It made it too sweet for my taste. I will make it again, but it still needs something...

I served this for a football-game party... we had a "taco bar" meal... everyone LOVED the meat. It'll be standard fare at future parties at my house.

this was sooo yummy and the easiest part of my mexican dinner party to prepare. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and it looked like I had gone to alot of effort.

I made this recipe for 15 people and it was just perfect! It was very smooth and the consistancy was just right. I received a lot of compliments and people asking for the recipe. Thanks Ortega!!

Very good recipe. I will definitely use this again. I used beef broth instead of water. ( always do). Came out excellent. Just like the restaurants… but I had problem with my tortilla they seem to always be over stuffed with this good meat. :D
