Food for Thought: Crockpot Love - Shredded Pork Salsa Tacos

The first time I made this recipe, it actually happened by mistake :) but we loved it! I had bought the pork for BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, but realized I forgot to buy buns *d'oh!* and I really don't care for eating pulled pork on regular bread... sooooo I decided to use the meat for tacos.

The fella loved it so much that it's become a hit in the house and a recipe I now make on purpose! LOL

First spray your pot with cooking spray, then place your pork inside.
I used approximately 1.25 lbs of country style, bonless pork rib meat.

Next pour a 10oz jar of salsa over top. Then add 1 packet oftaco seasoning mix. (We used the HOT kind for both, because that's what the fella and I prefer.)

I then pour approximately 5 oz of chicken stock over top (just enough to cover the meat). Lightly blend all the toppings together, to ensure the seasoning packet is mixed in.

I let it cook on low for about 7 hours.
After it's done, shred the meat just as you would pulled pork.

Make your taco as you so please and enjoy!

We love this because it had the spicy kick we love, was super tender and juicy, and left us filling full but not in a greasy, over stuffed way!

(I think this pork would also be yummy on nachos! Yum!)
