Tex-Mex Shredded Beef Sandwiches Recipe

Slow cooker meals, like this shredded beef sandwich, are my favorite kind because after I combine a few ingredients and let them cook there is time for me to do my own thing. Plus, I have a hearty, satisfying and enticing meal when I come home!—Katherine White, Clemmons, North Carolina
