Prepared in a pressure cooker (or not), this meat comes out fork tender. It is SPICY, so don't be afraid to cut back on the chipotles. YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Top Review by teresas

The hubby said this is one of the best things he's ever tasted...either he was starving...or he really loved this...It's such and outstanding dish...I made as posted (in the pressure cooker) with the top amount of the suggested ingredients...it wasn't to hot for us...it's just packed full of flavor...I served it with heated flour tortilla and some sour cream with salsa...the side dish was some refried beans...I had a 3 pound pot roast and it could have spent about 15-20 minutes more in the pressure cooker...the outside of the roast shredded with no problem...but the inside didn't...so I just cut it up...it was cooked through...this is going in my best of cookbook for 2017...thanks for posting the recipe...:)
