Slow Cooker Tequila Lime Beef Barbacoa {Spiked!}

Slow Cooker Tequila Lime Beef Barbacoa {Spiked!}

In case you missed the announcement a couple of weeks ago, this month's Spiked! Recipe Challenge ingredient is Tequila!  And it was just in time for Cinco de Mayo! ;)

Tequila is not a liquor that I partake of often.  In fact, I had to head to the liquor store to pick up a bottle because I did not currently have one in our liquor cabinet.  There was a time (a LONG time ago during my college days) when I could kick back shots of Cuervo with a little salt and lime and call it night, but those days are far behind me.   Now I like to enjoy a nice margarita (frozen & flavored, please) every once in a while, but save the shots.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 to 2 lbs of stew beef
