  • Use any leftover meat for sandwiches or make a taco salad. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Season the roast with salt and pepper, to taste, and the cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and cayenne. Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven. Brown the roast on all sides.

  3. Remove the meat from the cooking liquid and shred or cut into pieces. Serve in tortillas with desired taco toppings.
