    NELady's Note:

    From Tastes & Tales From Texas... with love by Peg Hein, c. 1984. This dish of shredded pork wrapped in flour tortillas is a slightly different and delicious version of an enchilada.

      This recipe is so good AND easy! I used all the same ingredients but because I love to use my crockpot as much as possible, I just added the ingredients to my crockpot and let it cook all day, then shredded with a fork when I got home. I have used this on pork, chicken and roast beef...all were wonderful. Thanks for sharing this great, easy recipe!

      This was very easy and tasty. I cut the meat in half, but used the same amount for the other ingredients. Made as written. Tagged for 123 Hit Wonders. I will make again as an alternative to pulled pork.

      This worked out very well for me, since I usually have frozen shredded pork on hand, so that cut off 3 hours of cookint time! I easily cut the recipe in half for 3 of us! A GREAT NEW WAY FOR US TO ENJOY PORK! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed while on tour with ZWT5]
