    Could you supply another seasoning packet alternative–since I abhore/detest anything ranch dressing–for me it qualifies for do not put in mouth.

    1. Jamie

      I can tell you that I do not like anything remotely spicy. and I have not made this specific recipe, but a very similar one (I used pork) with the salsa verde and it is not spicy.

  2. Oh my gosh Jenny! This is so easy and looks delish. I am a little intimidated by some SWern/Mexican dishes and you totally simplified it. Can’t wait to try it. We are having a birthday party this weekend. I was going to make wings, but this looks soooo easy and would be a crowd pleaser.

    Jenny,

    Let me just tell you how wonderful this dish was!!!! I made this for my family last night and it was delicious! We even had leftovers and I had it again today for lunch. Everyone enjoyed it so much that no one was talking during dinner, they were to busy trying to get the next bite of food in their mouth!!! Thanks for the recipe…..its’s definitely a keeper 🙂

    This was fantastic! I was worried that it wouldn’t be seasoned (or salty enough) but it was excellent. Will make it many more times!!

  5. Kristen Bright

    I just love your blog!! All of your recipes have been very doable and delicious. Thank you! (I have your cookbook, too) 🙂

    So.. what crock pot do you have? do you love it? is it generally reliable enough to leave alone for 6-8hrs? I have two 6qt ovals, one I’ve got down to a science for the most part, the other one I hate. I’m getting rid of it. But I like having two big ones for family events(which occur regularly enough). I’d love to have a crock pot that I can truly set and forget- like an ancient one I used to have. All the newer ones seem to get so hot! I’ve filled up to the brim in the one i’m getting rid of and still had burned food! Burned chicken soup!
    TIA for any info!

    I made these with a bear roast! They were the best
    Tacos ever! So easy and since we hunt and had
    The meat on hand it cost less then 5$ to feed a
    Family of 4 and I have to say we all had more then
    Three each. lol so good thanks for the recipe it is
    One we will be keeping.

  8. Debbie

    Do you taste the ranch dressing mix in this? I have a taco soup recope that calls for the ranch mix and i don;t taste it at all in that

  9. Natalie

    This was so good. Only problem I had was the roast didn’t fall apart. I had to cut it up with an electric knife. Any suggestions?

  10. Cassie Sue

    Yummy looking recipe, never tried ranch seasoning in it before. I have a tip to make them even better, brown the meat first. Get a really good sear on it and it just adds that much more flavor. I’ve also tossed a few jalapenos in to kick up the heat, but that’s more of a personal preference. And this meat is usually pretty delicious on nachos as well. 🙂

  11. Jenny Lee

    I made these last night and they were delicious!! My only problem I had was it was a bit spicy for my son. Does the Salsa Verde come in different heat levels?

  12. Lulu

    This was absolutely delicious, we made our own salsa verde and used a different salad dressings sauce (whatever we had in the house) with a bottom blade roast, and it turned out great! So easy. Word of advice for people using the crockpot/slow cooker for the first time- when it says 4-6 hours, it literally takes that long! We definitely learned the hard way 😉

  13. brittany

    i made this yesterday and it was absolutely amazing. my picky kids each ate 2 and my husband said its a new favorite. i added water because i had a frozen roast and cooked it all day on high in my crockpot. so good!

  14. I have this in the crockpot as we speak. I didn’t have roast, so I used stew meat. I didn’t have tortillas, so I am using pasta. So wish me luck. It sounds wonderful.

  15. Evelyn

    Looking forward to making these!! How spicy are these? We don’t like things that are too spicy…do you think it’s kid appropriate as far as the heat level? Thank you!

  16. Jan Landrum

    Was fabulous! The flavor could rival any Mexican restaurant! This may be my all time favorite recipe! Thank you!

  17. Gloria King

    I followed your Salsa Verde Beef recipe and my family ate it all up in no time. It was super easy and delicious. The cilantro is a nice touch. Thank you!

    A friend shared this recipe with me and my husband and I totally love it!!! We sub chicken and add onions and bell peppers. So delicious. Everyone should try these!!! Yummy!

  20. Lauren McAvoy

    LOVE this recipe. I also add a chopped jalapeno and some chopped onion while it’s cooking. Then serve them topped with some lime juice and cilantro. DELISH!
