This is best served in a crusty roll topped with red onion, sliced tomatoes and sour cream! The spicy salsa can be substituted with 1 7-ounce can chipotle sauce if desired. The chipotle sauce and jalapeno chilies can be found in your Mexican section of any major grocery store. Adjust all amounts to taste, I have made this in the past, it is *very* good!

This is the best Mexican beef recipe I have found yet! Love the addition of the honey to add some interesting flavor. I added juice from jarred jalapeno chilies, cayenne pepper, a can of diced tomatoes with chilies as well as a regular can of the diced tomatoes, and some cilantro to the dish while it cooked in the crock pot. Served it in burritos with rice and beans! Husband loved it!! Thinking of using some of the leftovers in enchiladas.
