My hubby and I are always looking for great recipes for our favorite mexican foods. This one hit the mark!! It was so tasty and so easy to make. I made no changes to the recipe and I don't think there are any that are needed. Loved it!!!

Very good! The pork was cooked perfectly and had a nice subtle flavor. We also used the pork as a filling in burritos. Thanks!
