Crock pot recipe. Beware - this is spicy, but is an excellent shredded beef for tacos, sandwiches or enchiladas!

I've been trying various chipotle meat recipes for a while. This is my favorite so far! Easy as all get out, spicy and tasty! I put the trimmed roast into the crockpot, then combined all the other ingredients into my blender. A quick spin later, I poured the liquified goodness all over the roast and turned on the crock. Dinner tonight was very well received.
