Beef Tacos

Makes 48
  • 6 lb. boneless rump roast
  • 1.4 oz. pkg. French Onion Soup/Dip Mix
  • 1 tsp. beef soup base
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 48 (6") corn tortillas
  • - toppings: shredded lettuce, sliced cucumbers, shredded carrots, chopped onion, Salsa Fresca, grated Cotija (Queso Seco) cheese

Cut roast into quarters; rub with dry soup mix. Place roast in a large crockpot. Dissolve soup base in water; pour around roast. Sprinkle roast with garlic. Cook on high until beef is tender enough to pull apart with 2 large meat forks (about 5 hrs.). Remove meat from juices, pressing as much liquid as possible out of the meat; shred beef. Add tomato sauce to beef juice, stirring to combine; keep warm. Place about 2 tbsp. of shredded beef in center of each tortilla; fold in half. Fry each tortilla in hot oil on each side until crisp (about 2 min. per side); drain. Keep warm until ready to serve.

To Serve: Arrange 2 tacos on a dinner plate; top with shredded lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, onion, Salsa Fresca, warm beef juice and cheese.
