One of my favorite things is beef barbacoa. It is a slow cooked Mexican beef dish that simmers in chiles, onions, garlic, and oregano and comes out tender and delicious, perfect for any taco, burrito, or meal on it’s own served over rice. My favorite way to eat it is with simple oven baked crispy taco shells. Warm a corn tortilla in the microwave, spray it with a little bit of cooking spray, and drape over the oven racks creating your own healthy, crispy taco shells. Serve with a little bit of cilantro, onion, and your favorite salsa if you want more heat. This recipe is based off of the beef barbacoa on Skinnytaste. This would also be delicious with pork or chicken. Point value is for the beef only.
