4Strain the mix and put it in a small sauce container.

To Finish

1Chop the onion and coriander branches into tiny pieces. Mix them. Put the mix in a small container. You can use this mix to fill your tacos along with the barbacoa. You can add lemon and salt to taste to each taco.

2That’s it! You've cooked a chipotle barbacoa recipe! A lot of people like to accompany their barbacoa tacos with jalapeño or habanero pepper bites. But be careful. They are extremely spicy!
