  2. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
  3. Reserve and store* half of the beef mixture; use in Easy Posole (see recipe below). Spoon remaining beef mixture into taco shells. Sprinkle with green onions, chopped tomato, and shredded lettuce, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
