Crock Pot Chipotle Shredded Beef Tacos

I make tacos in my crock pot often but I have never made beef tacos in it before. Well, I have been missing out! What was supposed to be a pot roast dinner ended up being a taco dinner! This is the one time where I am actually glad that I forgot to buy the veggies for my pot roast. My forgetfulness really paid off! These tacos were fantastic and the chipotle peppers added a nice spicy kick to them. I am definitely making these again and soon!

Crock Pot Chipotle Shredded Beef Tacos
Makes 10 tacos
Cal 158, Fat 10.2g, Carbs 9.4g, Fiber 2g, Protein 9.3g

1-2lb boneless chuck roast (Mine was 1.5lbs)
3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
1 cup fat free beef broth
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cumin
10 taco shells (I used whole grain)
Shredded cheese and any other toppings of your choice
Note* You can lower the point value to 3pp per taco by using low carb wheat or corn tortillas

Spray the bottom of your crock pot with cooking spray. Season the meat with chili powder, garlic, and cumin. Add meat to your crock pot add pour in your beef broth and top with chipotle peppers. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until meat is tender. Shred with a fork and spoon into taco shells. Top with cheese and an additional toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
