Before we go any further, I have to let you know that this recipe is a bit of a labor of love BUT it is absolutely, 100%, without a doubt worth it. If you have ever had smoky, spicy beef adobado or beef barbacoa, this recipe will help you make it at home and it will taste better than what you have had in restaurants. We seriously love it and I often make it when we have friends over and it's always a hit. If you want an unexpected, delicious party dish, this would be a perfect choice as well.
Now that I am done gushing about how much I love this recipe, let's talk about what makes it so so good. The secret is in the dried chilies. They add heat, smoke, and a depth of flavor that is almost impossible to achieve with fresh peppers or canned sauces. Then paired with onion, garlic, canned chipotles, and some spices - you make a killer sauce that the brisket will cook in for hours. I usually triple or quadruple the sauce and the freeze it for future meals. That way I don't have to make the sauce every time we are craving this meal.
