1 1/4 lbs boneless chuck pot roast
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 Tbsp oil
1 medium onion, sliced
1 can (10 oz) mild enchilada sauce
1 sweet red pepper, cored and thinly sliced
1 poblano pepper, cored and thinly sliced
1 ear of corn, kernels cut from cob
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
8 thick corn tortillas
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and sliced
Farmer's cheese, crumbled (optional)

Heat oven to 350F. Season pot roast with chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Heat oil in an oven-proof lidded pot over medium-high heat. Brown pot roast on both sides, 5 minutes total. Transfer meat to a cutting board, reduce heat to medium and add onion to pot. Cook 3 minutes. Add enchilada sauce and 1/2 cup water and return meat to pot. Cover and transfer to oven.

Bake at 350F for 1 1/2 hours. Remove from oven and stir in peppers, corn and jalapeno. Cover and bake an additional 30 minutes. Uncover and shred beef, discarding fat and tough pieces. Stir back into pot. Microwave tortillas 1 minute, until heated through.

Fill tortillas with beef mixture and sliced avocado. Top with farmer's cheese, if using.
