PREP: 15 MINUTES; COOK: 6 HRS., 30 MINUTES This recipe is fast and easy--your family will love it. I found it in SOUTHERN LIVING. You can probably substitute your favorite beans as well at the tomatoes. Green chilies are not manditory but it certainly adds a touch of spice. It's a very nice one-dish meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. COMBINE: 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, both cans of tomatoes , onion and 1 tablespoon chili powder in a medium bowl.
  2. SPRINKLE roast with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and brown on all sides in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Place roast in a 5-1/2 quart slow cooker and pour tomato mixture over it. Cover and cook on HIGH for 5 to 6 hours or until meat shreds easily.
  3. REMOVE roast and cut into large chunks; keep warm.
  4. SKIM fat from juices in slow cooker. Mash 1-1/2 cans (about 2-3/4 cups) pinto beans; add to slow cooker. Stir in black beans and remaining 1/2 can pinto beans. Add roast beef chunks into slow cooker and cook on HIGH for about 20 minutes. Place a jalapeno pepper slice on each serving, if desired.

This was very good!! It was a nice change from traditional pot roast. I made the recipe as written except when I added the beans to the crockpot, I also added 1/2 tsp. cumin and 1 tsp. granulated sugar. I didn't add the jalapenos because, unlike myself who loves very spicy food, my family doesn't like their food too spicy. Thanks for a great recipe.
