This set-it-and-forget-it beef roast is as versatile as it is richly flavored—it gets a gentle, smoky heat from chipotle chiles. Serve it as-is with sides and then reinvent leftovers in everything from quesadillas to tacos and burrito bowls. It’s an easy way to set yourself up for days of delicious meals!
