Smokin' Manwich

Hubby was excited to see that I had a roast in the slow cooker he was ready for some tacos.  He was a little disappointed to find out he wasn't getting tacos.  Instead I told him I was making Smokin' Manwiches.  He looked at me with a puzzled look on his face, okay... I'm making roast beef sandwiches he still didn't look to thrilled.  Once he tasted this sandwich he forgot all about the tacos.  He said to me you know when you have a sandwich and some bites are not as good as the last, this sandwich every bite is incredible.  Wow, that was a nice compliment.  What makes this Smokin'?  It's the smokey chipotle peppers that give it a nice kick.

Smokin' Manwich

3 1/2 cups chopped from Slow Cooker Mexican Beef (Recipe HERE)
4 rolls or buns (I used what I had on hand)
4 slices pepper jack cheese
2 ripe avocados
1 lime
zest from one lime
salt and pepper
4 chipotle's, chopped (canned in adobo sauce)

If you are using leftover mexican beef heat it up otherwise it is already hot from coming out of the slow cooker.  In a bowl add avocados and smash with a fork add zest from lime, juice from 1/2 a lime, salt and pepper (to taste) and mix together.  Spread avocado on top and bottom of bun.  Chop chipotle peppers and divide and spread on bottom bun on top of avocado.  Squeeze the other half of the lime juice over the beef beef place on bottom bun and top with a slice of pepper jack cheese.  Place sandwich open faced  on cookie sheet and put under the broiler just until cheese melts add top bun and serve.
