First Monday Favorites – October 2017

A mouthwatering crockpot roast rubbed with Texas seasoning and then slowly cooked in green chile enchilada sauce until tender and flavorful.

Without a doubt, last month’s favorite recipe was definitely this one for Green Chile Enchilada Crockpot Texas Roast. It took very little time to put together, only made the smoke alarm go off for about ten minutes, and simmered all day long to make an easy neighbor dinner, which consisted of make-your-own-tacos. After trying it, I decided that I would also like to play around with a pork version of the same recipe and even The Saucy Southerner agreed. Not only did she make the beef version but she also came up with her own Green Chile Pulled Pork version as well. I’m looking forward to playing around with this recipe in the next few weeks and sharing my own personal pork version, but until then, make sure you try this one and tell me what you think.

  • Yum! I’m grabbing some tortillas and making this over the weekend! After I turn off the smoke alarm and go shopping for more pumpkins!

    • Yeh…I pretty much set the smoke alarm off every time I sear anything…we have no fan above our stove which doesn’t help! Bob is used to coming to the rescue! (Taking the smoke alarm off the ceiling and hiding it in the garage for the day!)
