Cinco de Mayo Celebration

Today I did a little prep work to prepare my taste buds for Cinco de Mayo by eating these tacos:
spicy pork, steak and chorizo tacos topped with onion and cilantro and fresh lime juice. 

Hubby and I have been doing taco lunch dates for the past few weeks while PB is at school.  Best idea ever.  These tacos are amazing!! It is a tiny little grocery store/ restaurant so I picked up some spices when I was here too.  

Over the next 2 days I am going to share 2 very easy recipes that can be whipped up with the same ingredients and in no time and you can be celebrating Cinco de Mayo!  

Here is everything I will need to make my celebration delicious:
poblano peppers, onion, jalapeno pepper, garlic, avocado, tomatoes, and limes

cilantro, shredded beef, tortillas, queso blanco, queso fresco, corn, tortillas, tortilla chips.  
You could easily use a rotisserie chicken instead of beef for an even easier meal!!

I made the shredded beef today.  It is a beef roast that I cooked at 325 degrees in the oven until the inserted thermometer read 145 degrees.
I cooked the beef on a roasting rack over a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil.  Spray the roasting rack with cooking oil for easier cleanup.  Then I patted the beef dry with a paper towel and coated it with salt, pepper, garlic powder, Mexican chili powder, Mexican oregano and olive oil.  It took less than 2 hours in the oven and I let it cool and pulled it apart with my hands.  Now my beef is all ready for my 2 recipes!  Stay tuned for tomorrow!!
