DIRECTIONS

  • Microwave onion, chili powder, chipotles, oil, garlic, jalapeno, tomato paste, and cumin in a bowl, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes; transfer to slow cooker.
  • Stir tomato sauce, sugar, and liquid smoke into slow cooker.
  • Season beef with salt and pepper, add to slow cooker, and coat evenly with sauce mixture.
  • Cover and cook until beef is tender, 9-11 hours on LOW or 5-7 hours on HIGH.
  • Transfer beef to large bowl, let cool slightly, then shred into bite-size pieces, discarding excess fat; cover to keep warm.
  • Let braising liquid settle for 5 minutes, then remove fat from surface using large spoon.
  • Toss shredded beef with 1 cup braising liquid; add more liquid as needed to keep meat moist and flavorful.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • **Filling can be refrigerated in airtight container for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 1 month.
  • If frozen, let filling thaw completely before using.
