How to make it

  1. Take the lamb out of the fridge 30 minutes before you cook it, to allow it to come to room temperature. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Add oil to a large frying pan or removable insert from a slow cooker and brown the lamb on all sides.
  3. Place onions in the bottom of the slow cooker, and place the lamb on top. Add the ground coriander and cumin, then the stock, 1 tbsp of Chipotle Paste, garlic cloves, apple cider vinegar and cook on high for 6 hours. 
  4. Turn every 2 hours, until the meat is falling apart and you are able to remove the bone clean.
  5. Serve with warm Gran Luchito Soft Taco Wraps and Hot Habanero Mango Salsa. Garnish your tacos with a bit of raw diced onion and fresh coriander, then add a squeeze of lime juice and enjoy!
