“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.”

**** 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 as 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 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 the 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.
