I stumbled upon beef barbacoa through my students obsession with a Mexican grill I shall not name. They were constantly rushing out of class to try to make it there and back before lunch was over. Of course, the bright side of them catching my attention was that it encouraged me to check the place out. It was delicious and a dish I knew I wanted to make my way.
September 15 through October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month. This Mexican Shredded Chicken is inspired by all the wonderful people in my life who hail from all over Latin America and the Caribbean. I could not let this month go by without doing an inspired dish. Viva la revolucion!
