I am a meat and potatoes girl.
So I loved roast growing up.
But it is not my families favorite meal (yeah.. cuz they are crazy).
That said, I still need a roast here and there. And living in the southwest for my whole life means I enjoy some spicy food. So why not a Spicy Chipotle Roast?
It’s a great twist on a standard roast and you can use your favorite meat (or what is on sale), pork or beef, both are delicious. Serve with mashed potatoes or even rice and beans. You can can also make my Spicy Sopes with Chipotle Sauce Pork Roast– which is a restaurant quality meal!
Roast is super easy, can please a crowd and makes killer sandwiches the next day.
