You Will Need
In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, and paprika. Rub the spice mixture on both sides of the beef.
Add the oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the beef and sear, about 5-6 minutes per side, until it's dark and crusty. Place the beef in a slow cooker and make the pan sauce.
Leave the pan over medium-high heat and add the beef stock, tomato paste, and chipotle peppers. Whisk to combine and cook for 4-5 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. As the sauce cooks, scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the pan.
Add the onions and garlic to the slow cooker and top with the sauce. Cook on low for 8-9 hours or until the beef is easily shredded.
Remove the beef from the slow cooker and pull apart. Strain the onions from the sauce and mix into the shredded beef. Serve with tortillas and your favorite toppings.
