Chipotle Shredded Beef Tacos

Russ Myers


Chipotle Shredded Beef Tacos...They are so good. The meat has the smokey spicy flavor of chipotles and cumin...actually the meat would be good in a ton of other tamales...enchiladas...on a bun...or just served over rice.

Now this really isn't a quick throw together meal, but most of the cooking time is hands off...but it's worth the effort.
