ChiCho Shredded Beef

ChiCho Shredded Beef. Recipe by Rose Auflick of Mingled Vitality.

Guys…this beef…y’all NEED to make this! It is RIDICULOUS how EASY it is for such a unique flavor. “ChiCho” is short for “Chipotle-Chocolate” which is lowkey Mole in disguise. You make the broth and let a roast sit in the slow cooker with it all day, soaking in all the seasoning so it’s good and ready for dinner.
