Crockpot Chipotle Barbacoa in the Crock Express

Crockpot Chipotle Barbacoa

I am a huge fan of the favorite well-known Mexican chain’s Barbacoa. I could eat it every single day. Seriously, every. single. day! I wanted to be able to make it anytime, so I have this Crockpot Chipotle Barbacoa recipe that is perfect for the days you just want to eat in!

Thankfully, this week we got our own favorite chain that opened up right down the street, within walking distance. Oh, and did I mention it’s got a drive through? Yes, the first drive-thru the chain has to date and we get to experience the goodness. Needless to say, we have eaten there three days in a row since it opened on Tuesday!

This spicy crockpot chipotle barbocoa meat is flavored with chipotle peppers in adobo sauce that make it so tender and flavorful. Put it on a bed of lettuce, in a burrito bowl with rice and beans, or use it to make burritos or tacos! Be sure to check out our other favorite Mexican dishes like Crockpot Mexican Casserole.
