    I recently made this and I shredded the meat with a fork and added about 1/2 c. rice (because there was so much liquid). My husband loved it wrapped in a tortilla with some sour cream and I also think it was wonderful on salad.

    I tried this for the first time tonight and I wasn’t impressed. It feels like the recipe is missing something..we put it over mashed potatoes because we felt like there should be something else served with the meal.
