I made this for a beachhouse camping trip and it was the most complimented dish of the weekend. If you're on the low budget use pork shoulder or butt instead of steak. I used that instead and it was still a winner. Instead of expensive salsa use much cheaper canned tomates then add fresh cilantro, jalapenos and onion which is what salsa pretty much is anyway. I also added 1 Tbsp of cumin and minced garlic but that's just me. Enjoy!

Believe it or not, after 10 hours of cooking the Mexican flavors were about gone. I ended up adding extra seasoning at the end. Next time I may use medium salsa instead of mild. Shredded the beef and used for 7 layer burritos (froze the rest for a tasty treat on a later date).

This was soooo good. I used a rump roast which came out extremely tender. There was plenty of spicy gravy that I served over mashed potatoes. The family enjoyed it. I love roast cooked in a crock-pot and this was something a little different. Thanks Lorac.

Excellent and easy to do. It made a ton of "salsa gravey" that will go well over pasta!! My guests just loved it and so did I. Thank you Lorac for another great recipe.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I mixed the leftover meat and sauce with cooked rice, corn and wrapped it in a tortilla. Then topped the tortilla with more sauce and baked it. My husband loved it! Next time I'll make stuffed peppers with the leftovers. This is a winner!

We love Mexican so I wanted to try this recipe for pot roast it sounded so good. I threw it in the crock pot in the morning before I left for work and my DD had it ready to go when I got home. The taste was splendid and we really dug in and had a feast. Thanks for sharing Lorac!

Absolutely Fantastic! This is a keeper in my cookbook. I put in mushrooms as well just to add a little something extra.

This was easy and had an excellent flavor. It's a keeper! I put sliced black olives in the mixture too. Sour Cream makes a good side dip for your "meat" chunks! This would probably be good with chicken.

Outstanding! Outstanding!This was so easy to put together. I used a Top Round 5 pound beef roast and didn't double the recipe. The meat cooked up so tender. I removed the roast and shredded it and placed it back into the crock pot. I served this over garlic mashed potatoes. A true keeper.

This was very flavourful and we all enjoyed it. The meat was very tender. It was also very quick and easy to make. I'll definately make this again.
