3 Hr 10 Min

Thanks to a little taco seasoning, a whole lot of tomatoes, and some other yummy ingredients, we can enjoy a Mexican-inspired version of a dinnertime classic. Our Mexican Pot Roast is full of zesty flavors that you and your family will eat right up. Serve it up tonight for a change-of-pace meal.

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 three-pound lean boneless beef chuck roast
  • 1 (14 ounce) can whole tomatoes, chopped, undrained
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies
  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry taco seasoning mix
  • 1 beef bouillon cube, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add roast and brown 3 to 5 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.
  2. In a small bowl, combine tomatoes and their juice, chilies, taco mix, bouillon, and brown sugar; mix well. Pour over pot roast; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 3 to 3-1/2 hours, or until roast is fork-tender. Remove roast to a cutting board.
  3. In a small bowl, combine water and cornstarch. Slowly pour into tomato mixture in soup pot and stir until sauce thickens. Slice roast across grain and serve topped with sauce.


If not serving this immediately, return the sliced roast to the pot with the sauce and keep warm over low heat until ready to serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is really easy and delicious. Since it shredded really well, I served it as a shredded beef taco with all the fixings. Definitely making again. * Tip: This can be made in a crock pot/slow cooker.

Sound D'lish!

Will this work in a crock pot? If it has to cook slow, I think is should work?
