    Chef Chöich's Note:

    I Love the barbacoa style beef roast at Chipotle Mexican restaurants. I decided to try making it on my own at home for a change and see how it turned out. Now I can have pretty close to the same thing at home without going out. My first attempt came out pretty good and was attempted on 5/14/08.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 3-4


    soft ta ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (2 lb) chuck roast
    • 2 (2 ounce) packets ortega chipotle taco seasoning
    • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
    • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    • 1 dash hot sauce
    • 2 cups water (enough to barely cover roast)


    1. 1
      I have a 2 pound roast so the directions will vary due to weight. (1 packet of seasoning per pound, 1 TBS of cooking oil per pound, 1 TBS of apple cider vinegar per pound).
    2. 2
      I put 2 cups of water in my crock pot and put the 2 packets of Ortega chipotle taco seasoning in and whisked. Then I added 2 TBS of cooking oil, 2 TBS of apple cider vinegar, and a dash of hot sauce and whisked again.
    3. 3
      I placed the roast into a large skillet and seared both sides then placed in crock pot.
    4. 4
      Set the crock pot to low setting and let it slow cook from 7am to 5:30pm while I was gone to work for the day. The meat just fell apart when trying to remove it from the crock pot. Removed meat from crock pot and shredded with fork on cutting board and placed in serving dish. Cook time I would say 8 hours minimum on a low setting and less time for higher settings.
    5. 5
      We added tortillas, lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, salsa, and sour cream to garnish. These were delicious and pretty darn close to the real deal. Depending on what size tortillas you use and how much meat you put into them determines how many servings this will make.

      Very good and easy. A great change from taco seasoned ground beef in recipes. Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to try it in enchiladas.

      Easy and yummy! I used regular Ortega taco seasoning b/c they didn't have the chipotle flavored kind at my grocery store. Still ended up with a good flavor. Thanks for sharing!

      Great roast! Flavorful but not too spicy for my preschool-age daughters. We served this on heated flour tortillas with fresh good! Browning the roast first added extra flavor. The only change I might make next time is reduce the water to seasoning packet ratio, but either way it rocked! This was served with Creamy Rice Casserole.
