    Excellent recipe! I left out the chipotle as well because I don't care for the flavor. It took a bit of work to shred it but was worth it. Also, I pureed the sauce before I added the beef back in so it wasn't chunky. We'll definitely be making it again. Would be great for a small get-together since you can just throw it in the slow cooker and forget about it.

    This is an awesome recipe with lots of versatility. Rather spicy, but full of flavor, and easy to prepare. I will definitely make this dish again.

    Absolutely incredible! My husband isn't the biggest fan of super spicy so I went with the hot salsa instead of the chipotle sauce & followed everything else. It's perfectly tender and full of flavor. My question is - what do you do with the reserve sauce it asks you to ladle out afterwards?? It says, "See Notes" but I didn't find anything...Any suggestions? Stew base maybe?

    AMAZING! Loved this meal! I actually cooked it for longer on a low setting...maybe 15 hours and it all fell apart nicely! It defenitly has so heat to it though=)

    Fantastic flavor and very versatile. Use in nachos, enchiladas, burritos, sandwiches and even omlettes. If you like a heavy breakfast. My sons love that it is easy to make at college and freeze in proportionate servings. Love it!!!

    This was absolutely delicious. An amazing change of pace from tacos and enchiladas. The honey adds a depth of flavor. And so easy too. I have made this several times.

    These were great sandwiches. We couldn't find chipotle sauce or canned jalapenos so we subsituted hot salsa and canned green chiles. The sandwich wasn't as hot as we'd like, but it definitely made for a milder, yet still tasty, sandwich. I recommend as described with the cabbage, red onion, tomato, cilantro and sour cream additions.

    The notes say: Save extra sauce from recipe to top Mexican rice or cooked pinto beans. Its seems a bit watery for that. Has anyone had any luck incorporating the extra sauce into a dish. Don't want it to go to waste!

    Delicious and spicy!! Great open-faced with crusty bread and a vinegar-based coleslaw. It would also be good with soft shell tacos.

    After it cooked, I thought it needed to be a tad bit sweeter, so I added another tablespoon of honey. Served on whole wheat french roll with CL's spicy slaw on top of beef. The meat smelled better than it tasted, wasn't bad, but didn't excite the tastebuds either.

    I used 3 pounds of meat, about a 1/4 cup of small diced onions, the honey in the recipe, one big can of rotel mild tomatoes & green chilis and one small can of Rotel HOT! Then poured the beef broth over it like the recipe says. Once it was done, I removed the meat from the crockpot and shredded it in a bowl with two forks. I strained 1/2 the liquid (keeping everything but separate). I poured the rest of the liquid from the crock pot (with rotel & onions etc) into a 12 inch sautee pan and brought it to a boil adding Cornstarch to thicken it ***Make sure to follow the Cornstarch directions (because I just dropped it in and it clumps - you need to mix it with COLD water for it to work properly)... Once it was to the thickness I wanted I added the mixture into the bowl with the beef (straining the oil). It came out amazing (like consistency of BBQ Beef or Pulled Pork)! I also saved all the extra liquid for a "just in case" - it was so good!

    Wow, this was one of the best recipes that I have found on the internet. I added a bit of hot sauce to the mix to crank the spice and heat. We will be eating this regularly.
