    Jillster's Note:

    Slow-cooked pork tenderloin in a very sweet, spicy, smokey, Mexican-inspired sauce. Super easy. Cooks in a crock pot. Great in tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and salads!

    1. 1
      Dump peppers into a mesh sieve or strainer, and then holding the sieve over your crock pot, pour the Pepsi through them to get all that delicious sauce into the pot. Discard peppers.(I know it seems like a waste, but adding the peppers will make it too spicy. This small amount of sauce is perfect for the recipe.).
    2. 2
      Add remaining ingredients and then stir until combined.
    3. 3
      Trim as much visible fat from the pork as you can.
    4. 4
      Add the meat to the crock pot.
    5. 5
      Cook on high for 5 hours.
    6. 6
      Shred the pork with two forks and then lower the temperature to low, and cook an additional 3 - 4 hours, until the meat is a nice mahogany color.

      This recipe is ok, but very very sweet! My husband didn't like it at all, but he is not a fan of the sweet and savory combination as I am. I thought it was good, but liked it better on baked potatoes than in tortillas. It seemed too sweet for Mexican food; however, the potato was reminiscent of a BBQ spud, and mellowed the sweetness.

      The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because it's not as thick as it looks in the picture. The flavor is excellent but it was very runny, not thick at all. I will make it again though and thicken it up on the range top. I did use mild enchilada sauce and it wasn't too spicy for my kids.

      Excellent. I made exactly as directed with one exception. I put this in a pot and boiled on high for about 15 minutes after it was done in the crock pot in order to reduce and thicken the sauce a little more. We made this into burritos with cilantro lime rice. It was perfect. We will be making this many more times!! thanks for the great recipe.
