Spicy Shredded Beef Burritos~Robynne

Robynne Glenn


Adapted from a copycat version of Chipotle Mexican Grill Barbacoa Burritos. I make them and my husband say's "Chipotle's got nothin' on you, honey"!

I usually make the beef the day before I serve the burritos and reheat and adjust seasoning, as needed, but this is not necessary.

Serve with your favorite salsa, guacamole and don't forget the sour cream!

Thanks to Bonnie Dare for the great rice recipe "Cilantro Lime Rice" found on this site!

Disclaimer: I have always used recipes as a guide and use my instincts and experience to alter or omit ingredients as I cook. Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way. Trust your experience and adjust to your personal taste~Robynne

How to Make Spicy Shredded Beef Burritos~Robynne


  1. Sprinkle seasoning on roast. In a large dutch oven, heat olive oil and cook each side of roast until lightly browned.
  2. Adobo Sauce: Combine the lime juice, vinegar, chipotle peppers, garlic, cumin, oregano, black pepper, salt and clove in a blender (you can also use a food processor) and blend at the highest speed until it’s smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour the adobo sauce over the meat and add in the beef broth and bay leaves. Cover and roast in 325 F degree oven for approx. 5 hours or until tender.
  4. While roast is cooking, add all the bean ingredients in a crock pot and heat on high until bubbling, stir and simmer on low heat until ready to serve.
  5. When roast is done, let cool and remove the butchers twine and bay leaves. Shred the beef using two forks and remove excess fat as you shred. Adjust seasoning if needed and simmer on low heat until ready to serve.
  6. Make Lime Cilantro Rice as directed.
  7. When ready to serve, warm tortilla in a dry skillet or wet with water and roll in a paper towel, heat in microwave for 30-45 seconds.
  8. Add a rice, beef, beans, salsa, cheese, guacamole and sour cream. Fold in both sides of the tortilla and then roll up as tight as possible from bottom to top, keeping the sides closed in as you go.
