We enjoyed this tonight. I definitely like the add of the carrots and potatoes - it cut the heat for the kids. I didn't cube it but shredded it after it cooked. We used homemade tomatillo salsa and I used homemade salsa instead of the tomatoes.

Wonderful recipe...I am not a big fan of pork however; I will be making this dish again. I loved the addition of the potatoes with the sauce in this dish. For simplicity, I used a pork loin roast and just shredded it when the dish was cooked. Even my daughter who is not a fan of Mexican food or meat enjoyed dinner last night. Thanks loof for the keeper. Made and reviewed for the 47th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.
