  • 1 small loaf French Bread (cut into 4 2-inch slices)

  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
step-by-step directions
  • Blend adobo rub and brown sugar together to make rub. Apply to short ribs and let sit for 30 minutes to an hour. 
  • Take short ribs and put in roasting pan.  Add beef broth to pan and cook in oven at 300 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  Let cool and then use your hand to pull apart the short ribs.  Add manchego cheese to shredded beef.  Set aside.
  • Heat maple syrup with chipotle peppers to infuse.  Heat to warm and then set aside, keeping the peppers in. Adjust seasoning to taste with chipotle powder.
  • Take your French loaf and cut into 4 2-inch slices.  Cut a pocket into the bread for your mixture.  Take your mixture and stuff the bread until the mixture sticks out slightly over the bread.  
  • Take eggs, milk and cinnamon and make mixture for bread.  Take your French toast, put in baking dish and pour egg mixture over the bread.  Let sit for at least 1 hour so egg can soak all the way through. Once bread is soaked through, cook in a large non stick skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes on each side.  Make sure to flip on each side of the bread crust as well to cook the egg through. Serve French toast with chipotle syrup.
