I’m always a little hesitant when it comes to spiciness. I like having enough heat to give my food a little kick, but I don’t like having  so much that it hurts. It’s also nice to have some other flavors – like sweetness and smokiness – to round out the spiciness.

This Slow Cooker Pineapple Chipotle Beef hits all of those notes. It has a good amount of heat, but it still has a nice bit of sweetness, savoriness, and smokiness. This beef is fantastic in tacos, quesadillas, and in just about any other dish. So, it’s just as perfect for game days as it is for week days.

    What kind of chile did you use? I know it says a tbsp of sauce but what kind of chili? Is it canned?

      The chile is a canned chile in adobo sauce. You can usually find them near the enchilada sauce and canned green chiles in the grocery store. Let me know if you have any other questions.
