Another favorite from one of those small magazines at the grocery check-out. Makes good use of your crock pot. :)

I really liked how simple this was. I am not a huge fan of corn muffins but it was a nice change from tortillas. The meat was really flavorful and fell apart so it was really easy to shred. I did add a little water when I added the meat I was worried it would be too dry. Will make again. Made for Mini cook-a-thon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the trimmed pork shoulder in a crock pot (3-4 quart size). Sprinkle with taco seasoning, and spoon the beans on top of pork and seasoning. Cover and cook on LOW for about 8 to 10 hours.
  2. Remove pork from the crock pot and place on a cutting board. Take 2 forks and shredded the pork. Return the shredded pork back into the crock pot and stir everything well. Stir in the Velveeta cubes, and let it melt.
  3. To serve - split the corn muffins in half. Place the bottom of the muffin on a plate and put about 1/2 cup of the pork mixture on the muffin bottom. Top with a little bit of lettuce and tomato, and then replace the muffin top. Serve with the sour cream, and sprinkle with cilantro if you want.
