Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Shredded Chipotle BBQ Sandwiches

We really enjoy barbeque around here. We also love spicy. So when I discovered a chuck roast in my freezer the other day, I knew exactly what was going to happen to it. So easy. So good. Make it as hot or as mild as you want. Put the mixture on buns...wrap it in a flour tortilla. Add cheese if you want. So many ways....but all yummy!

Shredded Chipotle BBQ Sandwiches


1 2-pound chuck roast
1 large onion ~ sliced
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp crushed chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (or more if you like spicier)
4 tsp apple cider vinegar
3 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
pinch ground pepper, to taste

Place the sliced onion in the bottom of your crock pot.

Place your roast on top and add 1/4 cup of water.

Salt and pepper, if desired.

Let the roast cook all day until you can shred it easily with two forks. (I let mine cook for about 8 hours.)

In a medium bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients.

Pour over shredded meat and stir to combine.

Allow to heat through for a little while.

Serve on buns, in flour tortillas...whatever!

Here's what you need.

Place the onion on the bottom 
of the crock pot. Place the roast on 
top of the onions and add 1/4 cup of water.

Cook that baby all day!

Shred it to bits!

Make up the bbq sauce.

Pout the sauce over the shredded meat.

Stir it in and heat through.

Pile the meat on some buns or eat 
it straight out of the crock pot like I did.
