Recipe Corner: Slow Cooker Mexican Meat

This yummy recipe is very versatile. You can use beef, chicken, or pork to make your favorite Mexican dish. My family loves it in a burritos and tacos. If you are not a fan of spicy, adjust the ingredients to fit your palette. I hope you enjoy!

• 1 (4 pound) chuck roast
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 large onion, chopped
• 1 1/4 cups diced green chile pepper
• 1 teaspoon chili powder
• 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
• 1 (5 ounce) bottle hot pepper sauce
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Trim the roast of any excess fat, and season with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place meat in hot skillet, and brown meat quickly on all sides.
2. Transfer the roast to a slow cooker, and sprinkle onion over meat. Season with chile peppers, chili powder, cayenne pepper, hot pepper sauce, and garlic powder. Add enough water to cover 1/3 of the roast.
3. Cover, and cook on High for 6 hours, checking to make sure there is always at least a small amount of liquid in the bottom. Reduce heat to Low, and continue cooking for 2 to 4 hours, or until meat is totally tender and falls apart.
