Baja Pot Roast

"This isn't Grandma's traditional pot roast. My Baja pot roast is a kicked-up combination of spicy chuck roast, potatoes, and baby carrots with pico de gallo, jalapeno, green chiles, and Southwestern spices that explode together with every bite. Serve as-is or with tortillas and sour cream."
