Mexican Pot Roast

Serves 12

2 tablespoons olive oil

 1 (3 – 4 pound) beef chuck roast, trimmed

 1 teaspoon salt

 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

 1 large onion, chopped

 1 1/4 cups diced green fire roasted chili peppers

 1 (5 ounce) bottle hot sauce

 1/4 cup taco seasoning

 1 teaspoon chili powder

 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

 1 teaspoon garlic powder


Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season beef chuck roast with salt and pepper. Cook roast in hot oil until browned entirely, 2 to 3 minutes per side; transfer browned roast to a slow cooker.

Sprinkle onion, chili pepper, hot sauce, taco seasoning, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder over the roast.

Cook on Low until meat is fall-apart tender, 8 to 10 hours.
