4. Pour a layer of the liquid at the bottom of the crockpot then add in the chuck roast, rest of the liquid and bag leaves. Cook on high for 4-6 hours until tender and start to falls apart.

Add some of the broth over top.

The more chipotles and adobo sauce you add, the spicier it will be. I personally don't like it to hot so I only added 3. Also, regular oregano works fine.
