This was great. I doubled all the spices except the salt and it was perfect. I had a 4.25 pound pork shoulder roast and started it on high for a few hours then changed to low. I think I let it cook for about 8 hours. We had way to much left over as there are only two of us, so we made BBQ pulled pork with the left overs. It was great!! Thanks for a great and easy recipe. Will be my go recipe for pork roasts.

I was looking for a recipe to slow cook a pork shoulder butt roast. I saw this one because it said Mexican Pork Roast. My husband and I love Mexican food so I decided to make this one. I slow cooked the roast for 10 hours, it was a good size and when it was done it fell off the bone. That night we made burritos they were delious. The next night we made tacos and a couple of nights after that we had BBQ pork sandwiches. I will differently make this recipe again.

This was fantastic. I served this over tortilla chips baked crisp with melted mexican cheese for shreadded pork nachos. I topped the pork nachos with beans (drained and mixed with Rotel) and sliced jalepenos with pico, avacado and sour cream on the side. YUMMY!
