This meat was really good. We used it for burritos.
This recipe is quite good w/ a very different taste than the norm. Didn't have a chuck roast handy, so used 3 lbs beef stew meat instead, dredged in flour, salt, pepper and seared. Cooked on low for 8 hours, served over brown rice, the meat was nice and tender. Thanks to RedRain for the tip on left over chipotle peppers!
We made burritos and they turned out great. There was enough for lunch the next day and I froze the rest for another meal. It was a little juicer that we like, so next time I will let the sauce reduce more.
Made this many times, love the flavor of the beef. We use it for taco filling. The only thing I do differently is brown the meat and use that same pan to saute the onions etc. This combination of spices is mouth watering!
What to do with left over chipotle peppers? Whirr them up in a blender and freeze in teaspoon increments on parchment/waxed paper. When frozen, dump in zip-loc bag and use when needed. Nevermind about recipes saying "minced chipotles" etc; the frozen teaspoons will do fine & give the recipe the kick called for.
