How to make it

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan or removable slow cooker insert. Generously season the beef brisket with Garlic and Guajillo Fajita and Taco Mix and brown on all sides (you may need to cut the brisket into large chunks depending on the size of the joint).
  2. Place quartered onion in bottom of slow cooker with brisket on top, add beef stock, Chipotle Paste, garlic and give it a good stir. Cook on low for 8 hours, turning every 2 hours, until meat shreds easily with two forks.
  3. Serve in tacos, burritos or simply with rice and beans.
