    Remove seeds and stems from the dried peppers. Tear up the chiles and place in a food processor, add garlic, pulse a few times, add to slow cooker. The type of New Mexico chile will determine the heat in this recipe. I used mild and my roast had no heat, just off the hook delicious flavor.

    I have a 6 qt. Nesco elec. roaster, and I put it on 325° and cooked the roast for between 3-4 hrs until it was pull apart tender. This could also be done in the oven with a lidded pan, or crock pot, cooking times may vary.

    I flipped the roast about once an hour, that is how I knew she was done, the last flip resulted in the roast falling apart.
