  • 1 bag Cheese Bread, any flavor
  • 1/2 C packed adobo paste
  • 3 large tomatillos, husks removed & quartered
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/3 C fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 2 t kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 2 1/4 C chicken broth, divided
  • 4 1/2 pounds beef chuck roast
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 2 jalapeños, sliced
  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 400F.

  2. 2

    Bake Cheese Bread following package instructions.

  3. 3

    Combine adobo paste, tomatillos, garlic, lime juice, salt, and 1/4 cup chicken broth in a blender. Blend on high until smooth.

  4. 4

    Generously season beef on all sides with salt and pepper.

  5. 5

    Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once shimmering add beef and brown about 4 minutes a side (you might need to do this in batches depending on the size of your pan)

  6. 6

    Meanwhile, place onions and jalapeños on the bottom of the slow cooker.

  7. 7

    Once beef is browned transfer to the slow cooker. Pour off any fat from the frying pan into a heatproof bowl. Return pan to heat and add 1 cup of the broth to the frying pan. Scrape any browned bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon then pour broth into the slow cooker.

  8. 8

    Add adobo mixture and remaining 1 cup of broth to the slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4.

  9. 9

    Beef should be fall-apart tender when done. Shred meat and serve as tacos, enchilada filling, on top of a rice bowl, or straight from the pot with a fork. Add more salt as needed.

  10. 10

    Slice Cheese Bread in half and stuff each with carne adobada.
