this was a bit bitter even though i cut back on the spices. i used 1 1/2 tbsp of chipolte chile powder, 1 can of green chiles, mild salsa, and i did cook this in the crockpot. i was thinking that if i added the spices while the brisket was cooking that they wouldn't have that raw hot taste. i served these on buns with cole slaw, and sw potato slices
