Chipotle Barbacoa Burritos

Chipotle Barbacoa Burritos Recipe
These Chipotle Barbacoa Burritos take some time to make, but they are worth the time!

These Chipotle Barbacoa Burritos are one of my favorite Mexican dishes. We start out with a beef chuck roast, which is seared on a pan and then slow cooked to perfection. The secret to this beef barbacoa’s flavor is in the sauce, which includes smoky chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, cumin and a splash of lime juice.

The beef is slowly simmered in a chipotle broth with bay leaves for a tender, flavorful combination.

Although we’re putting the barbacoa mixture in burritos, you can also serve this on its own, or in a bowl topped with chopped onion, cilantro, cheese and guacamole. This would also taste amazing as a topping on nachos!

The burritos are topped with sour cream and grated cheddar cheese. They are so good!
