Copycat Chipotle(R) Barbacoa Bowl

This is a compliation of the other “Copycat Chipotle” recipes. The nutrition is  for without tortillas. If wanting to use tortillas, we used low carb La Tortilla Factory at 50 calories apiece. We used two per serving for 100 calories added on. It’s good as is however! You can find lean cuts of meat at the grocerer or butcher. We also cut the amount down to 2 lbs on Barbacoa.
