Slow Cooker Barbacoa

Welcome to the first post for Foodie Friday!!!

I am in no way, shape or form a chef or a “cook” for that matter. I just love to cook and learn new things when it comes to food. My husband is a chef, as you may have seen from a previous post. So, these are just tried and true recipes that he has taught me, or that I have learned or created on my own that I wanted to share.

Today is Slow Cooker Barbacoa and if you are Mexican like me, this is an important staple in life. If you like Mexican food— like me— then this is also an important staple for your life. Get past what the first ingredient is and I promise, you will love it.
