Crock Pot Cookin: Green Chile Roast

Okay friends, this is seriously the easiest and fastest crock-pot recipe I’ve ever made and bonus – it’s super good too!  My new barometer for crock-pot success is whether or not preggers (aka Georgia) actual eats the entire meal.  I am happy to report that not only did she eat her green chile roast, she finished eating before me!  I was quite proud of myself :)  The ingredients are pretty basic and you have a lot of options when it comes to what kind of meal you want.  We went with green chile roast burritos but you can also do green chile roast tacos/tostados, roast on rice, green chile roast lettuce wraps… you get the idea.  It only took me about five minutes to put everything together and when I got home from work all I had to do was shred the meat with two forks and it was dinner time.  The total cost for the meal was approximately $13.00.  

If you give this recipe a go, let me know how it turns out!

What you’ll need ~

The fixings ~

Light sour cream - Diced tomatoes - Diced onions - Salsa - Reduced fat cheese
