Copycat Chipotle Barbacoa Recipe // Beef It’s What’s For Dinner

Chipotle Barbacoa

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the Beef Checkoff. I received products to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

When the Beef Checkoff asked me about my favorite easy beefy weeknight meal, it was a no brainer... I first shared this copycat Chipotle Barbacoa recipe just a little over a year ago, and it's quickly grown to be one of the most popular recipes on my site!

And with good reason. It's made in the slow cooker, so it's super easy to make, and it's such a versatile meal. We alternate serving it over Coconut Milk Rice (a la Chipotle's burrito bowls) with turning it into barbacoa soft tacos.

My growing preteen boys have even been known to slap it on a bun and eat it as is...

Chipotle Barbacoa

Packed full of the same Chipotle barbacoa flavor that you know and love, this recipe makes a large portion that can easily be stretched into 2-3 meals, depending on the size of your family and the size of the beef chuck roast that you use. Not to mention, beef is packed full of 10 essential nutrients that can help my family be their best, not the least of which is plenty of protein.

I put together a short video showing you just how simple it is to make this copycat Chipotle Barbacoa recipe. It's pretty simple and straightforward, but I get a lot of questions about the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, so I made sure to include that info. I promise they're not as exotic as they sound, and you will definitely be able to find them in your local grocery store!
