I love to make this as I can make several Meal Options from this one recipe.
This is a Slow Cooked Pulled pork with a Mexican flavor. It can be used in Tacos, Enchiladas, and Sandwiches. Its pretty versatile. This Aroma thru the Kitchen is wonderful.

It freezed well for Use any time.
These are on the Very Mild Side, If I want Hotter I just Increase the Ceyenne and Chili powder. or add Jalapenos.
You can make this Hotter or mild. The choice is all yours.

Choose your own Toppings as You desire;
Sour cream, Guacamole, Lettuce, mexican Cheese, Olives, Green Onions, tomatoes, Salsa's green or red, its your choice.
I also Serve these in WARM soft Shell Tortillas, Either Flour or Corn.
I usually add a Medley of A fresh Fruit salad with them such as Fresh Sliced strawberries, Fresh Pineapple and Kiwi all mixed together. Its looks so pretty on a plate, with this salad. You can also add refried Beans if You like.

I hope You will enjoy this as much as we do.
Slow cooker is the Great way to Cook and have No Heat in the house, on Hot days.

Freda, Have you used this sauce with a beef roast? I have a couple of chuck roasts and a rump roast in my freezer but no pork roast or tenderloin and don't plan on going shopping for a few days but would love to make this tomorrow for enchiladas.

Sure Nancy, Use Beef too. Not a Problem, Just as good.
Just make sure you cut in strips like a pork Tenderloin, as it will cook tender, do not leave it whole in Big Chunk.
I Can't tell You about the Cooking time As I don't recall for sure. Should be about the same. I really like the Flavors in this.
I also use Cilantro, But my family (mom) doesn't like a lot of Cilantro. So Use your own taste preferences.

I have been craving these every night now for past 3 nights. . . I have got to Finish these off.
They are so filling, 3 nights is long enough for me to eat one Kind of a Meal. They are soo good with all the Trimmings or Just eat alone rolled in a Buttered Warm Tortilla.

I Had to Have one As a "snack Attack" from the leftovers, I Zaped the Pork in the Microwave till warmed, Just so I could have a TV snack again last Night. Can't believe I had this craving this long.
