Recipe by Lightly Toasted
Very flavorful filling for tacos (hard or soft) from "The Well-Filled Tortilla. This is not spicey at all...but very tasty. Some of you may need to "kick it up a notch" But we love the flavor of this

Thanks for posting. I started them on the stove, then dropped them into the crock pot to finish. I had to add another 1/4 cup of wine before they were done. My grocery store has been having freshly smoked chipotle peppers. I chopped up 3 and added them to the mix for a slight smokiness. Next time, will add 1 or 2 more and allow enough time to do them all the way in the crock pot.
