“This is an amazing shredded pork recipe similar to what you would eat in a rice bowl (or in an enchilada) at a Mexican restaurant. It is easy to prepare and simmers in a slow cooker all day, ready to enjoy when you arrive home. I serve it over rice (laced with lime juice and fresh cilantro), Cheddar cheese, salsa, guacamole, and a dollop of sour cream. Amazing!” - by TORA.V
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Place the roast in a slow cooker, and season with salt. Place chile peppers and garlic on top of roast. Pour in the chipotle sauce and 1/2 cup water.
- Cover, and cook 7 hours on Low.
- In a pot, bring remaining 2 3/4 cups water and rice to a boil. Mix in the lime juice and cilantro. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.
- Remove roast from the slow cooker, and use two forks to shred. Return pork to the slow cooker, and allow to sit 15 minutes to absorb some of the liquid. Serve over the cooked rice.

"**** CHIPOTLE SAUCE ****** - Look in your grocer section where the taco sauces are. I found an 8oz. bottle of Chipotle Sauce there made by Ortega. Same bottle style and look as taco sauce but labled a..." See mores Chipotle Sauce. I cooked the meat with the stated 1/4c. of Chipotle Sauce. I also added a generous sprinkling of Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning. This stuff is great, pure flavor because it is not salt based. Once the meat was done, I put the gravy in the frig so the fat/grease would rise to the top and congeal...then removed the fat/grease. Poured the defatted gravy over the shredded meat and added the remainder of the 8 oz. bottle of Chipotle Sauce and a sprinkling more of the Mrs. Dash S-West Chiptotle seasoning. The end result tasted just like Chipotle's shredded meat - fantastic ! It had tons of flavor contrary to the complaints of other reviewers. I also salted the rice after it was done cooking. Additional suggestions for serving this: serve with black beans and corn."
"This recipe was awesome! I chopped up 1 small onion and minced a couple of cloves of garlic and added it to the crock pot. Also, instead of the water, I used a bottle of Corona beer and squeezed 1/4..." See more of a lime on top of the pork in the crock pot. I simmered the meat for about 4 hours on low. I served the meat with tacos, it came out AMAZING! I will be using this recipe again and again."
"Made this recipe for my Cinco de Mayo party. It was a huge hit with everyone,even my siste-in-law who is Mexican - she suggested that I add a little cumin after I shredded the pork and put it back in ..." See morethe crock pot, which I did (approx. 1 1/2 tsp) It added more taste. This recipe is extremely easy and delicous. A keeper for sure. "
