No smoker needed to cook this spicey brisket to tender perfection! Chipotle peppers and smoked paprika give it just the right amount of heat and smokiness.
This melt-in-your-mouth brisket is fantastic with your favorite sides, in a tortilla, or on a bun.

So…I don’t grill. And I don’t have a smoker. Even if I did, I really don’t think I would want to be running in and out of the house in this heat to babysit a chunk of beef.
That’s why I love this slow cooker brisket so much!
It cooks all day on a bed of onions for the perfect set it and forget it kind of situation.
The smoky flavor comes from the chipotles, which are smoked jalapeños, and smoked paprika.
Cumin and honey join in to really kick up the flavor.
Start by spraying your slow cooker with some cooking spray. Then slice the onions and pour in the beef broth.
Next, in a small bowl combine the chipotles, adobo sauce (from the can of chipotles), olive oil, honey, cumin, salt, and paprika.
Then place the brisket on top of the onions and spread the chipotle mixture on top.
Cover and cook the brisket on low until it’s tender, about 8 hours.
When it’s cooked, slice or shred it and return it to the slow cooker and toss it with the onions and broth.
Serve your brisket with your favorite sides like corn on the cob, Smoky Bacon and Brown Sugar Slow Cooker Baked Beans, Creamy 3-Ingredient Cole Slaw, or Easy One Pot Bacon Mac and Cheese.
Or try it in a tortilla or on a bun.
