Whenever I whip up this recipe with chuck roast, it never lasts long

Print this recipe
Sometimes you want a classic pot roast, but other times you crave the bright flavors of a meaty, spicy chili. This recipe combines the two. A beef chuck roast is slow cooked in a combination of beef broth, chili powder and other Mexican spices, tomatoes and green chiles. The result is a brilliant mashup of pot roast and chili.
Serve this as you would any chili — topped with your favorite chili embellishments like shredded cheese, pickled jalapeno peppers, sour cream, salsa, diced onions, chopped cilantro and tortilla chips, to name just a few. You might never go back to making ground beef chili after you try this one.
