This turned out very well ~ we ate it as just our main meat for dinner. I can't wait to make this again.

This has to be one of THE best dishes I've EVER made in a crock pot! My husband was a cook at a Mexican restaurant for 4 yrs as a kid and he loved it as well. I had to make some substitutions because I didn't have certain things at home. Still turned out wonderfully, but probably just a bit hotter than this dish was intended to be. Instead of chipotle chiles, i used some dried red chilis i happened to have. I also used a can of jalapenos instead of green chilies. it was SO awesome!!! I highly recommend it.

My family LOVES this recipe! It is quickly becoming one of our top favorites. I make it with no chipotle peppers. I'm sure it is wonderful with them, but with small children, I leave them out and it is still delicious!

I made this for my partner and he thought it was ok. He didn't care too much for the chipotle peppers. I think its all a matter of preference. If you don't care for chipotle peppers either use very little or none.

EXCELLENT!!! I used an almost 4lb roast so i added more Chipotles about 5 large ones in the adobo sauce, (I tried the hotness before I added them and they were med-mildish) PERFECT for the spice lovers!!! Yummmy will defiantly make again!

Absolutely AMAZING! I added about a cup of medium salsa, a few dashes of Worcestershire and another half cup or so of beef broth. The flavor was incredible. Like some others, I was concerned about the heat when I first tasted the juice, but once the meat was shredded and absorbed the juice, it was perfect! I made shredded beef quesadillas with this, and it was better than what I get from any restaurant! My kids each gave it two thumbs... and two big toes up, lol. They said it was too good for just two thumbs.

Excellent. I made 2 roasts in a large crock. Instead of the salsa verde, I used drained canned diced tomatoes, and added extra of all the seasonings.

Fabulous! I added 4 chipotles instead for extra heat. I added a little cilantro, chipotle powder, and oregano also. Was even better the next day. Wrap it in a tortilla with cheese and sour cream and you will be in heaven!

I have been meaning to review this for some time. My guys just love this! They think it is better than french dip! It is so easy and versatile. I've used dry onion soup mix and a cup of water as a substitute for the beef broth.
