Judging by all the comments on my Facebook page, it is still very much winter in most areas of the US. It's been predominantly cold, wet, and dreary at the farm as well, so we're still in hibernation mode.  Bring on the comfort food!

This dish, tried, tested and appropriately adjusted by Steve Made, is a delicious infusion of the classic pot roast bursting with south-of-the-border flavors.

(Pulled, the meat works beautifully for burritos or tacos too!)


2 – 3 ½ lb beef pot roast
1 lb baby potatoes
3 large carrots, cut into bite sized pieces
1 tsp black pepper½ tsp salt1 large sweet onion, chopped
1 20 oz can red enchilada sauce, medium spice (or as spicy as you like it!)
1 10 oz can diced tomatoes
1 4.25 oz can diced green chilies
1 15 oz can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 15 oz can corn, drained
1 2.25 oz can sliced black olives, drained

  1. In a 6 quart crock pot pour ½ cup of the enchilada sauce to cover the bottom.
