Smoky Beef Taco Meat

I can take no credit for this recipe as it was given to me by my sister and I’m not sure where she got this recipe for smoky beef taco meat. This is made with chipotle chiles in adobo sauce. Be warned it is spicy – so serve it with plenty of sour cream. I of course have to use vegan sour cream due to my food allergies, but that’s part you don’t want to forget!
