I used pork shoulder to make this. I didn't marinate it but it turned out great anyway. Because of my choice of meat I let it cook on low for 8 hours. The meat was very tender and very spicy. I didn't need any salsa with it. Made for some super tasting tacos. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7.

This was a home run at our house. They even went out of their way to comment on how good it was. We have pork loin quite a bit because it goes on sale regularly and this was a great change of taste. Thanks!

This was REALLY good. My girl friend is not big on eating meat (maybe once a week) and she pigged out. she ate 5 tacos! :)<br/><br/>This is a well blended, and very authentic recipe. wonderful flavor.<br/><br/>I used Embasa chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Comes in a 12 oz. can. Just puree, use what you need, and refrigerate or freeze for later use. I hate buying fresh cilantro. I usually end up throwing quite a bit away after it spoils in the fridge. I use Litehouse freeze-dried (just add water) cilantro. I just added a 1/4 cup, and a tbls. or so more water to the recipe. I also used two tenderloin chops (aprox. 1.2lbs), but I would not hesitate to use a whole loin roast, and adjust ingredient qtys. for a large crowd. <br/><br/>We ate ours with sour cream and a four cheese Mexican blend.<br/><br/>Easy to prepare, great taste. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful flavor in this pork recipe!!! I made it using a Boston Butt Pork roast, which was about 1 1/2 lbs, so I scaled up the rest of the ingredients to match. I am a whimp when it comes to hot and spicy foods, but loved this meat. I plan to use it in another recipe for tostados later this week. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8.

A well-blended combination of seasonings that made for a delish pork dinner. Loved the spicyness.. just right for us. Made for Best of Cookbook tag 2011.

I needed dinner, so I threw 3 pork steaks in the crockpot & followed your recipe (except I added jalapenos and kept some of the onions -and all the cilantro- fresh, plus fresh lime and avocado) This was so good that the only problem is that there is nowhere near enough. I could sit down and eat a bowl of this meat ala cart. I will be making this forever, starting next week. Thanks!

Deeeeee-lish! I had a 2lb pork loin so doubled all of the ingredients and cooked for about 7 hours. Spicy but not overly so, tender and great flavor. Served on corn tortillas with tomato, sour cream and cotija cheese and loved these - thanks for sharing the recipe!

Delicious and spicy, this was my DH's lunch for days; he never grew tired of it until it was gone. Tender and spicy as mentioned elsewhere, good just wrapped in a warm corn tortilla. For ZWT7.

Pretty much out of this world :) My family licked the crockpot clean and I was told by my 9 year old who ate 5 small tacos that he could have eaten 5 more had there been any leftover. I served this with monterey jack cheese, lettuce, and Rowdie Chipotle Salsa. So good!

This was a great recipe - the meat couldn't have been more tender nor more flavourful. I also loved that this was a virtually hands-free recipe.
