One word ~ AWESOME. Used this recipe to make homemade burrito bowls for our dinner today. Nice flavor and oh, so easy. Can't wait to use the leftovers for enchiladas. Used beef stew meat and increased the beef broth to 1 1/2 cups based on the instructions that came with my pressure cooker. Cooked for 45 minutes at high pressure and the meat just fell apart when I stirred it with a fork. Will most definitely make this again. Thanks for posting Galley Wench!

Yummy and easy. Due to the limited selection at the market I went to, I used beef tenderloin--a very expensive cut of meat for a meal like this. It turned out fabulously though. (One would hope so!) Next time I want to try it with skirt steak. Since I'm growing Hungarian yellow wax peppers in my garden, and have LOTS of them, I used 3 of those instead of the poblano and cut the chipotle and adobo sauce in half (Hungarian peppers have more kick than poblanos). I cooked the meat 3 hours on low in my crockpot. It came out tender and flavorful. Will definitely make this again.
