    This can be served in a burrito or with rice and beans. The meat comes out very tender in a mild sauce. Don't forget the avocado and a cold Mexican Beer. Prep time is an estimate.

      Oh my goodness! This is a fabulous, multi-purpose recipe! I had permission from cookiedog to try this in the crockpot so that's exactly what I did. I cut a 3 lb pork shoulder (removing most of the fat) into bite-sized pieces. I then mixed all of the other ingredients, minus the whipping cream, in a large bowl. I put the pork into a 4 quart crockpot and topped it with the sauce. After mixing well, I set my crockpot on Low for 5 1/2 hours and added the whipping cream in the last 10 minutes of cooking. I served this to my roommate tonight with white rice, a side of guacamole, some pico de gallo and Trader Joe's Homemade Tortillas. We were cleaning our plates with the tortillas to get every little bit of the sauce! :D I'm taking the leftovers for lunch tomorrow with some rice to make into a taco. I'll top it with a few slices of avocado and my mom's salsa. Yum-O! BTW, this would also be awesome served alone with refried beans and spanish rice. Thanks so much for posting, cookiedog. Another fantastic recipe! :)

      We really enjoyed this recipe. The meat was very tender. I made some fresh home made corn tortillas and before I knew it, my husband and daughter were in the kitchen over the pan and eating it right out of the pan with warm tortillas! I didn't even bother to set the table for dinner! Thanks so much for this recipe. This is exactly the type of food we like!

      Great recipe! The meat was very tender and the sauce had great flavor. I skipped the cream and used 5 tsp. chili powder and 1 tsp. ancho chili powder. I do think that next time I will add some chiles to heat it up some, but I will certainly make this again (and again...)!
