chipotle tacos


  • 1 boneless beef shoulder pot roast (2 1/2 lbs)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 can (14 to 14 1/2 oz) beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 jar (16 oz) chipotle salsa
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • flour tortillas, warmed


Heat oil in stockpot over medium heat until hot. Place beef Pot Roast in stockpot; brown evenly. Pour off drippings; season with salt and pepper, as desired.

Add broth and garlic to stockpot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 hours or until Pot Roast is fork-tender.

Remove Pot Roast; cool slightly. Skim fat from cooking liquid; reserve liquid. Trim and discard excess fat from cooked pot roast. Shred Pot Roast with 2 forks. Combine shredded Pot Roast and salsa in 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through, stirring frequently, adding enough reserved cooking liquid (up to 1/2 cup) to maintain a moist consistency, if necessary. Stir in cilantro, if desired. Serve mixture with warmed flour tortillas.
