I rated this average if you dont put this in a burrito with salsa its very bland I did not expect this at all with the enchalada sauce and green chilies I was expecting it to be spicy not sure next time I’m going to dry rub the meat first with some cayenne, garlic powder salt n pepper

This recipe is misleading. Barbacoa is cow face; can’t be pork.

Any suggestions to substitute for the Coke/cola?
