Unbelievably easy and delicious! I got this from my sister in law and many people have started making them. It is incredibly juicy and tasty without being too spicy... very kid friendly!Everyone who tries it loves it. I double it and use the leftovers for enchilada's or freeze the leftovers. Great with chicekn or beef as well.
- 1 (1 lb) pork loin roast
- 1 (8 ounce) jar salsa
- 1 (4 ounce) can green chilies
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 8 tortillas
- 1 small sour cream
- 1 avocado, cut up
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- mix together Pork Tenderloin, Salsa, Green chilis, Minced Garlic, and onion powder in a crock pot. Cook it on low for 8 - 10 hours. when you open the crock pot use 2 forks and the meat will practically shred itself when you touch. Continue until shredded.
- Arrange meat mixture on tortillas and let everyone top their tacos as desired.
These were ok!! I think its because I am not big on pork. I made them because I had a pound of pork stew meat. When I put it in the crockpot it didn't look like It was gonna make much. So I ended up putting some slices of purple onion and diced potatoe. With some cumin, chili powder, and at the end I added a little corn. Now that I think about it I think I forgot the onion powder. I topped with lettuce, tomatoe, queso freso, avocado, some lime juice, and sour cream. My husband really liked them.
I doubled it so I would have leftovers to freeze. This is easy and delicious. This would be a great economical recipe to use whichever meat is on sale. Thanks for another great recipe to add to my OAMC recipe rotation. Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring '09.
This was great and smelled so good all day! I served the shredded meat on tiny corn tortillas with fat free sour cream and fat free cheese, onion and avacado. I had to use garlic powder because I didn't realise I was out of garlic. We all enjoyed this and was great scrambled into eggs for breakfast today!
