1 tablespoon chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (seeds removed)
1 cups beef or chicken broth/stock
Salt and pepper
Mango Lime Salsa
1 cup chopped mango
1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon lime juice
zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons minced red onion
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a small bowl mix together chipotle powder, smoked paprika, dried oregano, ground fennel, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour mixture over the beef and rub it in with your hands to cover the whole thing.
Place a dutch oven over medium high heat and add in olive oil. Once the pan is hot, add in the beef and brown on both sides (about 30 seconds – 1 minute per side)
In a separate bowl combine onion, orange juice, lime juice, chopped tomatoes, chipotle peppers and stock or broth. Pour that mixture over the beef then cover the dutch oven and place in the oven for 3 hours.
When the 3 hours is up, remove the beef from the pan and shred, then add back into the pan and toss to coat with sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

You can use a slow cooker instead of a dutch oven if preferred. Cook on high for 3-5 hours or low for 6-8
To make it spicier, add 1 tablespoon of chipotle powder instead of 1 teaspoon and 2 tablespoons of Chipotle peppers instead of 1!
