"This is so simple, it's almost a non-recipe, but so delicious I had to submit it. I came up with it one day when I wanted to do something different with a pork tenderloin. It was such a hit, it became a family favorite, replacing the pallid-by-comparison taco meat. It works just as well with boneless chicken or beef. It's very popular at potlucks and get-togethers, also. Pork weight is an estimate...I just use a good-sized roast. This is also a good recipe for OAMC, as you can cook and shred, then package the meat for later use."

"Great simple recipe I used 4ibs of Beef topside, 450g jar of Daniels fire roast mild Salsa & a few drops of Daves Roasted Garlic Hot Sauce, stuck it in the crock pot on low for 9 hours & it was fantastic as a filling in crispy bread rolls Thanks"
"I made this recipe exactly as written with no deviations. I just happen to have a jar of Chipotle Salsa from Safeway! It is one of 2 of our favorite salsas. I used the remains of last nights roasted chicken and it turned out deliciously, as you can see from my photos. Husband loved it and cleaned his plate :) I saved the leftovers with my FoodSaver and froze them. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for an easy and delicious recipe."
"This recipe is crazy good! And crazy easy! My husband loves it and has asked for it twice! Thanks for a fantastic, easy & delicious recipe! 5 stars all the way!"
"Fantastic and easy! I used the salsa I had on hand - medium garlic - and it turned out really good. I would recommend trimming as much fat as you can out of the pork."
"I made this for my son's wedding cooking 12 porkloins in chipolte salsa for about 18 hours in a roasting oven. It was a sensational hit - so easy to do. I'm making it for a friend's July 4 party tonight. Highly recommend it as a crowd pleaser and a nice change from barbeque pork."
"I just took this out of the crockpot. It's intended for tomorrow night's dinner, but I can already tell you it's a winner! nibble, nibble... :) It has a fabulous, fiery flavor and great texture. (None of that 'mushiness' that turns my family off of many slow-cooker recipes.) As promised, it's ridiculously easy and really good! Thanks for sharing, UC86. "
"Excellent! I used a beef roast and medium salsa, and added a tiny bit of water just to coat the bottom of the crock. My pot is an older one and I ended up cooking it for about 14 hours (I think it runs at a lower temp than the newer slow cookers). I plan to freeze it in zip lock bags to use later. My only change next time will be to use a more spicy salsa; this time I added hot sauce at the end to spice it up a little. Thanks for posting."
"I LOVE THIS RECIPE! I used 3.8#s of pork tenderloin with 2 - 12 oz jars of chipotle (hot) salsa. How easy and awesome is that! I am all about easy cooking, especially with a newborn. I started this meal at 5 am when baby boy woke up for his feeding - I was delirious and still able to make this! We used only cilantro as a topping = )"
"Really great recipe. I don't have a Crockpot, so I used a Dutch oven to cook it after cubing it into two inch pieces. Simmered for an hour, let it sit in the salsa for 20 minutes and it turned out perfectly, (also used the Safeway Chipotle Salsa). Thanks!!"
"So simple & what a great idea! I used what I had on hand - a tequila lime turkey tenderloin and a jar of lime & garlic salsa. So yummy - perfect taco meat!!"
"Absolute Score! Followed recipe directions for a simple and easy meal using a pork tenderloin. The week before I'd made a new enchilada dish and had to throw it out,it was too spicy and hot for us to eat.Fearful that it might be "too" hot again, we nibbled...and we were delighted to find that the cooked tenderloin was fully spiced, and just right for 2 great dinners on 2 different week nights. I will make again, as Hubby bragged to adult sons, and they'd like to try it!"
