Mexican Shredded Beef (Slow Cooker)

I've been holding out. I'm not sure why it's taken me a little over a year to share this recipe, so I apologize! I first made this recipe about a year ago to feed a small crowd (well, a crowd compared to my normal 3 people, but 8 may not be a crowd to many!), and I've made it many MANY times since, but never got around to taking pictures of it.

However, I've discovered my love of one-pot and skillet dinners.

One-pot and skillet dinners are quick to prepare, and only require one pot and a few prep utensils, which are easy to clean while the dish is cooking away on the stove. What's not to love?

While menu planning for the week, I was looking through one of my favorite cookbooks, that I've neglected for far too long - The Pasta Revolution by the wonderful people at America's Test Kitchen. I saw a recipe for a Chicken Saltimbocca skillet (one pot dish) that catches my eye every time I open the book. As I was …
