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.

I make this twice a month. We've used this roast for stuffed hatch peppers, brakfast burritos, enchiladas, tacos, nachos and on hamburger buns topped wih swiss cheese. So many options with this flavorful roast.

This was great! I used a pork butt instead of beef and vegetable broth instead of beef, but otherwise made as written. Served on corn tortillas for taco filling. UPDATED 1/25/11: Made directly as written(with beef and beef broth) and loved it even more. Cooked on high for 5 hours and came out tender and flavorful. Served on french bread rolls.
