Southwest Pot Roast

Southwest Pot Roast

This dish is Atkins Induction friendly.  My favorite way to serve it is with no-fat refried beans topped with melted cheese and a nice guacamole salad atop a bed of shredded lettuce.  Bear in mind that the beans as a side dish are only allowed when you get to the legume rung of OWL.  But they are just divine with this meat.  And it just doesn’t get any easier folks!
