I was inspired but Lindsey's chilaquiles but wanted to make something way, way simpler. So I put some seasoned, browned chuck in the crock pot along with three dried pasilla chiles, 1/2 cup orange juice, bay leaves, three cloves of garlic, and the stems from a bunch of cilantro.
I let it all cook for about five hours. Then I removed the meat and let it cool enough to shred. Meanwhile I removed the cilantro stems and poured everything else into a saucepan to reduce a little. I pureed this into a delcious sauce to serve with the tacos--along with shredded radicchio and Greek yogurt. Easy and tasty.
Between visiting Santa and attending a gift-wrapping party I'm going to try to make Christmas cookies this weekend! What are you doing this weekend?
