Ah, Chipotle – my love. I adore the chicken, the fajita veggies, but the beef barbacoa? To… Die… For. Especially with the fresh guacamole, for which I can never resist paying extra. “Why can’t you make this at home?” I wondered. It turns out, you can! My copycat Chipotle barbacoa recipe is one of the easiest dishes you can make.
If you didn’t adore your Crockpot before, I think you will, after you find out you can make beef barbacoa just like Chipotle’s in it! The best part is that the prep time takes a total of five minutes. Simply puree together everything except the beef and bay leaf, pour the mixture over beef chunks in your slow cooker, place the bay leaf inside, and let your Crockpot do all the work.
