    This is sooooo good and sooooo easy. I used a smaller pork roast, the kind that is ties in strings and doesn't seem to have much fat on it (not a tenderloin though). I removed the strings before cooking and followed the directions exactly except I did not stir in the cheese. You definitely taste the refried beans in the final product but I am a fan of refried beans. I made a crispy quesadilla using corn tortillas and shredded cheddar. Soooo delish!

    This was delicious! Quite possibly the most delicious meat mixture for tacos I've ever had! I adore refried beans, so the idea of pork smothered in them was heavenly to me! Once shredded and mixed with the beans and cheese, this was one seriously amazing mixture. Will definitely make this again!

    Very tasty, comparable to carnitas! Especially liked the fact that the meat was tender and juicy but not soupy and could actually be scooped into tacos. We did not add the cheese, but used the usual taco toppings and they were great.

    This was a very nice way to change up a pork roast. So so Yummy and so so easy!! I did use chopped onions, sour cream, cheese and hot sauce as my toppings though.

    My husband loves this dish! I cooked it on low for 8 hours and then it sat on warm for another two. The pork shredded beautifully and was very moist. This makes a lot, so make sure you have a big crowd. We were eating pork tacos for 4 days!! Thanks for a delicious, easy recipe!


I live in beautiful central califonia, but grew up in the cold of colorado!! I am an RN, IBCLC and look for food with a typical quick prep, and LOVE my crockpot. I love all types of food, from the fancy to the local taco stand- it's all good and a pet peeve would be the food snobs of the world.
