Cherry Chipotle Slow Cooker Barbacoa Recipe
Not only does this barbacoa recipe come together quick and easy, it’s great for feeding a crowd. It’s great for summer entertaining because you don’t even have to turn on the oven and it practically makes itself!
This barbacoa gets it’s flavor from RW Knudsen® Just Tart Cherry Juice.
Tart cherry juice is one of my favorite drink add-ins. But I decided to use it in a recipe this time around.
The tart fruity flavor of the juice goes perfectly with the spicy chipotles. This barbacoa beef is great in tacos, burrito bowls, on salads, nachos or in sandwiches. I used it in the best party food, Barbacoa Sliders!
How do you know when the barbacoa beef is done?
It will be fork tender and falling apart. Slow cook 6-8 low on high or 3-4 hours on high.
What if you like it extra spicy?
By all means, add more chipotle peppers if you prefer. Or if you are timid just use one chipotle pepper.
How should you serve the barbacoa beef?
Sandwiches, salads, tacos, burrito bowls, nachos . . . pretty much anything you can think of.
