Beef and pork cooked in a slow cooker overnight creates the most tender Mexican meat filling you'll ever have. Serve with tortillas, cheese, and sour cream.

Instead of throwing out all that liquid and paying for enchilada sauce you can use 3 cups of liquid and your own spices; salt, pepper, garlic, cumin and chili powder of your choice plus some diced onion and bell pepper add only a little more effort.

I agree with RBcook. Instead of adding water to the juices I used 3 8 oz cans of mexican tomato sauce, 4 chopped fresh jalapenos with seeds and 1 bunch fresh cilanto.

This is very good and easy. After the first cooking you get rid of all the fat so it's very lean in the end, unlike many shredded meat recipes. It's not very spicy and next time I think I will add 1-2 packages of taco seasoning with the enchilada sauce.
