I bet everyone has their favorite fast food Mexican place and no, I am not talking about Taco Bell, although it can be good from time to time. I’m talking about that little hole in the wall, that may not look like it has good food but it actually does. For me, although some from my hometown of Vancouver may disagree, my favorite little Mexican place growing up was Muchas Gracias. It has since ballooned in the city and is everywhere, but there was only one when I started eating there and I would always get the same thing, rolled tacos. Perfectly crunchy, topped with melted cheese and scoops of guacamole. I still crave them to this day so imagine how bummed I was when I didn’t make it there while I was visiting last weekend. Since I was still craving them, the first thing I did when I got home was make my self some and they turned out perfect. Crunchy and loaded with cheese and guacamole. Mmm…
For the shredded beef in this recipe I did use a slow cooker to cook a 3 lb roast, now that was obviously more than enough to make the 10 taquitos that I made but I refrigerated the left overs and made some delicious sandwiches the next night for dinner. So while I did include the recipe for the shredded beef I used, if you have any left over roast this would be a great use for it.
As I said before, this made a lot of meat and I made some awesome sandwiches the next day, be sure to check back on Monday when I share the quick and easy recipe for that. Enjoy!
