Create a super easy, budget-friendly meal with this Slow Cooker Chipotle Root Beer Beef Barbacoa. Customize your family dinner with tacos, quesadillas, and more!
You've got a bottle of root beer. A chuck roast. Some chipotle peppers, an onion, and a handful of spices. Oh, and a slow cooker. Can't forget about the slow cooker. What do you do?
Get all MacGyver on these ingredients and create an instant Mexican feast.
P.S. I love MacGyver. I have all seven series on DVD.
I remember being a kid and thinking MacGyver was pretty much the coolest person ever (still kinda do). And Murdock still creeps me out.
Okay, sorry. Back to food. So this chipotle root beer beef barbacoa. It's literally like a ridiculously easy, takes two seconds of prep kind of meal. And those meals rock.
And after you slave away all day in the kitchen (also known as throwing a few ingredients in a slow cooker and walking away for 6 to 8 hours), you get to dig in. And digging in is completely customizable.
Quesadillas more your style? That's how I was rolling this time around with this sweet and spicy slow cooker beef barbacoa. Just throw some of it along with a healthy dose of cheddar and/or jack cheese and cook 'em up in a skillet or in the oven.
Oh, and I almost forgot my favorite part. You need to make some easy pickled onions for this chipotle root beer barbacoa. It's SO good with it.
