Cinco de Mayo Celebration
Looking for a meal to make for celebrating Cinco de Mayo, look no further. This recipe is probably on of the best slow cooker recipes I have made, second only to the Guinness Corned Beef and Cabbage I make for St. Patrick’s Day. This meat is extremely tender and tasty. I made it with all the mild ingredients and the kids devoured it. The recipe goes a long way, enjoy leftovers over brown rice or as a nacho topping.
