This is a dish that will make your tongue jump out of your mouth, slap you in the face, and say 'Oh yeah'. Put meat and maybe some Pico De Gallo or salsa into warm tortillas to make tacos.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Place the roast on top of a large piece of aluminum foil. In a small bowl, stir together the green chiles, chili powder, oregano, taco seasoning and garlic. Rub onto the roast. Wrap foil around the roast so that it is completely covered, using additional aluminum foil if necessary. Place on top of a roasting rack in a baking dish, or place a cookie sheet on an oven rack below to catch any leaks.
  3. Roast the meat for 3 1/2 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until falling apart. Cook to at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Remove from the oven, and shred into small pieces using two forks. Season with salt to taste.

This was really really good. I cooked mine in the crockpot on high for 5 hours, last hour of cooking I added thinly sliced red onions. I also was out of chili powder so I used 1 whole packet of taco seasoning (Lawry's Hot Taco), and used fresh minced garlic. I shredded the meat and left it in the crockpot for about 20 minutes. Will be using the leftovers to make enchiladas.

This recipe is FABULOUS! It's tastes like what they serve at Moe's Southwest Grill. I made it in the crockpot (I don't like to cook things in aluminum foil). I cooked it all night on low. In the morning I shredded it and vacuumed bagged it for freezing. When I want to make tacos, enchiladas, etc. I'll have my meat ready. Thanks so much!

My husband lived in Veracruz, Mexico before we were married and he was totally "WOWED". I have made this with every cut of pork and it is so good! I also make in the crockpot and have never been disappointed. I have also made it in the crockpot with a beef chuck roast and it is delicious. You won't be disappointed!
