COOKING TIME INCLUDES COOKING PORK LOIN AND CROCK POT TIME! After pouring over numerous Mexican cookbooks, my boyfriend's mother and I came up with this recipe for our day after Thanksgiving Mexican fiesta. After a tortilla making lesson from the boyfriend's aunt, we used this meat for tacos. The next day, I made awesome pork enchiladas. The possibilities are endless!!

Too hot for this kid,but tasted great after I got past the heat. I will use fresh jalapeno's next time I make this. There will be no hot sauce either and less red pepper flakes as well.
