Used a 2 lb pork butt. Cut into 1/2 in. slices. Browned meat added onions for a minute or 2. Put in my electric pressure cooker. Added remaining ingredients. Cooked 45 minutes. Removed from PC Spooned into tortillas. Rolled up. Placed in baking dish. Sprinkled with cheese. Put in 350 degree oven til cheese melts or you could also put under broiler. In a hurry? Warm tacos & just put in a bowl & let everyone make their own tacos.

This was excellent! The only thing I did different was add the green chiles in the crock pot a couple of hours before the pork was done cooking. Great taste!

Terrific! Very easy & tasty. Only change I would make for next time would be to use hot Enchilada sauce instead of medium. We tend to like things a little spicier around here!
