Bland, tasted more sweet. Tried adding salt after it was shredded. Weird tasting, nothing Mexican in it

I will definitely make this again!!
Marie Provetto 12 Dec 2018
It was very bland, but it was super easy. I thought it seemed to easy and sure enough there was no real flavor other than beef. I will not be making this again

I made this awhile back,making it again tonight. I used a deer roast both times. I tenderize the roast ,in a Hefty plastic bag, over nite. The next day I shake salt, garlic powder & chili powder all over the roast & let it set over night in same bag. The next day poured a Sprite in to the bag and let it set overnight. The next day cook it in crockpot. When done shredded the roast & pour the lime juice over it. Delicious ‼️ Served it with Pinto beans & Cilantro rice.

Not bad but you need some salsa verde after for it as it can be quite dry

First time making something like this. Tasted great!

It’s okay. Using the meat for sandwiches, saucing it heavily for flavour. Acts as a vessel for sauce basically.

Definitely will be making this again!

this recipe is very good

For UK - I recommend Sprite as the lemon lime soda (full fat) as it works better and has a stronger flavour than 7up and actually adding 1.5x to double the amount of salt. Also really needed the lime juice at the end to give it the kick of citrus. Great in a wrap with some guacamole salad and chilli sauce.
Kris S. 27 Apr 2018
Ok, not a lot of flavor
Don 27 Apr 2018
It was good and made a great burrito with green verde sauce

A hit with my whole family
Michelle O. 25 Apr 2018
Easy recipe but I did have to add more flavor such as citrus fruit and spices. Good base to work off of.
M 25 Apr 2018
It is pretty good. Meat is tender and juicy. A little bland but I added onion powder to the crock pot. And with lime juice and garlic chili sauce at the end made it tasty
Emily C. 10 Apr 2018
Turned out pretty bland, but would be good with a good mix of things like a rice bowl, salad, or burrito.
Heather Donatelli 12 Feb 2018
More of the same...wish there was more flavor. Maybe if the spices were added the last half hour.
Tom Gepson 20 Dec 2017
I loved this! Instead of just putting everything in the crockpot, I seasoned the roast first and then browned it quickly. Then, put it in with garlic and soda.
Jessy Banninga 10 Oct 2017
The recipe needed way more flavoring. It just ended up tasting like a bland and somewhat dry pot roast. After reading some comments, I have a good idea for how I might improve it if I make it again, though.

This was a good way to make shredded beef on a busy day. But overall I felt the flavoring was plain. I was hoping for more taste. We ended up adding extra toppings and condiments for our own personal flavors and I wanted to meat to carry on it's own. It's not gross but lacked pizazz I guess

I followed the recipe exactly and used Sierra Mist. It definitely had alot of watery juice after cooking but was very tasty. We squeezed extra lime after shredding it to keep it moist.
Amy R. 24 Sep 2017
I am definitely not going to make this again. It was rather bland but had too much lime and chili at the same time.
Patricia Danridge 21 Sep 2017
Very tasty! I would make it again! It's good as a stew as well as in a sandwich!
Chrissy 21 Aug 2017
This tasted so bland, I should have made a stew instead
Lenna Scarsdale 3 Jul 2017
Made this tonight and it was a great hit with everyone!
Ann 2 Jul 2017
I modified the heck out of the original recipe. I used almost 6 lbs of beef chuck roast with the fat trimmed. I added Greek seasoning, minced garlic, cumin, Mexican seasoning with lime flavor (no limes available at the store), a jar of chipotle Mexican cooking sauce, 2 small cans of hot green chilies, cayenne pepper, sliced medium white onion, and a can of coke. I cooked it on high for about 6 hours. It smelled good from the beginning to the end. I shredded it and served it with tortillas and also on white rice. It lasted about 3 days and was gone. It was so delicious!!!
Shonia Struck 19 May 2017
I would say this was great for the beginners. I added my own touch of soda/wine. Added green onions to the meet and put sour cream on a tortilla added the meat then put salsa on meat and rolled up and added cilantro for flavor and my family LOVED it!
Thomas S. 14 May 2017
This turned out perfect! If it doesn't, then read the recipe again and try it again. I used fresh meat from a butcher, minced garlic, and a brand of soda from a health food store.
