    JamesDean'sGirl's Note:

    This is from a Mexican-themed booklet I bought at the supermarket check-out. We made these with whole wheat tortillas and mango salsa--it's a new favorite of DH's! (*Because this is slightly involved, you may want to start the night before with the pork stock, or let it simmer all day so when you get in from work, the flavors really develop and prep time is quicker.*)

      These are delicious! My husband requests them he likes them so much. My two year old loved them, too!

      Excellent tacos! I used a pork butt which I believe is about the same as a shoulder and started it the night before. I did have a lot of fat on the pork and didn't need all the broth, but was perfectly seasoned and spicy/smoky from the chipotles. This was great on corn tortillas and corn on the cob!
