This was really good! I usually don't like pork but I was impressed. I did add more veggies, carrots, celery, and one red potatoe. Also added some cumin. An hour before we ate I added zucchini and 1/4 cup rice. All in the crockpot!!! Love that!!! Added chedder and cotija cheese on top with a dollop of sour cream. Will be making this again.
