I’ve got a great Mexican Shredded Beef recipe for you today that is packed with flavor and super easy to make. You can use the meat to make tacos, burritos, enchiladas or a great big tasty Cafe Rio Style Salad complete with Cilantro Lime Rice and Cilantro Dressing (which is my favorite way to eat it!)

Hope some of you get a chance to try it!
