Slow Cooker Chipotle Beef Brisket

I am always looking for quick and easy meals that are flavorful and also healthy. I found this recipe several years ago. I think it is from Southern Living - but not totally for sure. I made it the other day with a brisket... as the recipe calls for but felt the brisket was pretty pricey. Everyone loved it so the meat didn't go as far as I would have liked. I may try it next time with a roast. We enjoyed this in flour tortillas with sour cream, salsa, cheese, sour cream,avocado and cilantro.


Slow Cooker Chipotle Beef Brisket

1 – 2 medium onions

2 celery ribs

2 garlic cloves

1 (2 – 3 lb.) trimmed brisket

2 tsp. salt

1¼ tsp. Chipotle chili powder

Chopped cilantro


Flour tortilla
s

Favorite toppings – shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, salsa,chopped fresh cilantro

Place first 3 ingredients in your crockpot. If you don’t have a trimmed brisket, trim the fat off now. Cut the brisket into about 3 individual pieces, rub each piece with salt and chipotle powder and place on top of the vegetables. Top with about a cup of chopped cilantro.

Cover and cook on high 6 – 8 hours or all day on low. Use 2 forks to shred the meat discarding any fat pieces

Serve with warm flour tortillas and your favorite toppings!
