These tacos capture the essence of a traditional barbacoa taco. Since goat meat is a little harder to find I love to use a chuck roast to make these amazing tacos.

Author's Notes

Guajillo chiles can be located in the Latin or spices section of the grocery store. If you cannot find any substitute with 10 oz. red enchilada sauce. </br> </br> If you don’t have an instant pot, you can cook the barbacoa in a 375-degree oven. Cover with plastic wrap then foil, for 1 hour and 20 minutes. The plastic wrap will trap the steam and make the beef tender. It will also keep the foil from seeping into your food.
