"Don't judge your taco by its price." -Hunter S. Thompson
This is a delicious filling for tacos, burritos or to top taco salad.
The chipotles give the beef a smoky spiciness and the ancho chilies bring a sweetness to the dish that gives the meat great balance. It is as easy as any dish you will ever cook requiring only a pot and an oven. You can make the beef spicier by adding a second or a third chipotle pepper.
