Barba-GET IN MY FACE-coa.
Before I created this here Barbacoa Enchiladas recipe, I found myself all, "wait, what IS barbacoa?" So, I looked it up, and it appears that in different regions of the world (and beyond) it's technically "cow's head." Um, okay.
And then I read on to find out that it also means "to barbecue." Oh, okay! So wait, do I barbecue the cow's head? And will this hurt? So, I went to my butcher and asked him, "what the wonk-a-loo-loo is barbacoa?" And he goes, "WHEN DO YOU NEED IT BECAUSE YOU PROBABLY DON'T HAVE TIME." Just like that. And I replied, "what?" And then he said, "it's a low and ssssssslllllllloooooow method of cooking where you gently break down muscle fibers. And you use cow's cheek, but we don't have any." So I chirped, "Oh thank God!" And bought a beef roast instead. The end.
I think my point is, this probably isn't teeeeeechnically barbacoa, since I cooked it in a pot, and probably used the wrong meat. But you know what, Chipotle does too! The end again.
So I think what I'm trying to say is, please don't hate me for not being 100% authentic. I'm only doing what I can here! The end again again.
Should we make it before you throw your computer in the trash? Okay.
Cheesy, beefy, yum.
