Recipe by Burned Toast
This was a wonderful creation I made today. I could not find a Mexican style pot roast that included the ingredients I had on hand, so I threw together what I hoped were spices that blended well. Boy, did they ever! I served this with vegetarian refried beans sprinkled with a shredded Mexican 4-cheese blend. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
- 3 lbs beef roast (chuck, top round, etc.)
- 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can red kidney beans, undrained
