Rate the RecipeRead Reviews (5)A little like a Mexican sloppy Joe, this juicy dish is best sandwiched in crusty French rolls and topped with shredded cabbage, red onion, sliced tomato, cilantro, and sour cream. Prep and Cook Time: about 30 minutes, plus 8 to 10 hours in the slow-cooker. Notes: Chipotle sauce, made by San Marcos, Knorr, and other brands, can be found at Whole Foods and Mexican markets or on MexGrocer.com. Save extra sauce to top Mexican rice or cooked pinto beans.

2. Cover and cook on low until beef is very tender when pierced, 8 to 10 hours. If desired, remove lid for last 30 minutes to allow sauce to reduce and thicken.
