Favorite taco/burrito filling

What's your favorite taco or burrito filling, and how do you make it/them?

Goodweed's Favorite taco filing - Shredded Beef
Ingredients:
1 large chuck roast
2 onions, coarse chop
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbs. chopped, fresh cilantro
2 tsp. ground coriander, spread all over the roast after it's seared
Salt
Get your heaviest skillet screaming hot, add a couple tbs. cooking oil and sear all sides of the roast to a deep brown color. Remove from heat, lightly salt all sides, and place in a slow cooker on low (not "keep warm") setting with the remaining ingredients. Let cook overnight or while you're at work. Just before serving, prepare your taco veggies and place in bowls, ready to build tacos. Have the shredded cheese ready as well. Remove the meat to a platter and shred with two forks. Place the shredded beef back into the slow cooker and mix with the juices. Pour off excess liquid and reserve for making fine gravies or sauces. Build your tacos and enjoy.

Goodweed's favorite Burrito filling - Carne Asada
Ingredients:
1 skirt or flank steak (about 2 lbs.)
Salt
Freshly ground coarse black pepper
juice of 1 lime
2 tbs. each diced green, yellow, and red bell pepper
1 medium white onion, diced
1 bunch cilantro, minced
Charcoal grill with hot charcoal

Lightly salt the steak and throw on the grill. Cover and cook for 3 minutes per side. Remove from the heat and let rest for 10 minutes. During that time, use the grill to cook some corn on the cob, or other favorites.

Finely dice the steak and mix together with the lime juice, cilantro, pepper, onions and diced bell peppers. Heat a heavy skillet ofer medium-high heat and add 2 tbs. cooking oil. Pour the mixture into the pan and saute until the onion is soft and translucent. Remove from the heat and use to fill the best burritoes ever.

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

My guys prefer pork but at times I do beef. I use either eye of round or chuck roast, brown them pop in the slow cooker and let it go over night...Toward the end I add my seasonings, sauteed onions,garlic, then add cumin salt and pepper and I leave some of the meat juice..Pork I use the butt, and basically the same seasonings as it is what we all like. Out of this we make at different times of course, tacos, enchiladas, or even meat on french rolls with lettcue , tomatoes, more onions...

My wife is a purist... as close to Taco Bell as I can get them, LOL!

Myself, it's Pedro's Beef Burrito Enchilada style...

Lightly brown some nice beef, trimmed of fat. Season with salt, pepper,
cumin, chili powder. Add a bit of liquid (I use beer or stock), cover and
let braise till soft.
Add enough enchilada powder to thicken the juices. Serve in a warm flour
tortilla covered with melted cheddar cheese and more of the sauce.

Took me more than 10 years to finally get the actual recipe from the now-closed
restaurant, and I actually had to promise not to publish it until the owner passed...
i just love the internet.

I cook lentils with 1/3 salsa and 2/3 water. That, along with spanish rice, tomato, cilantro and guacamole makes for a pretty tasty taco IMO.
