Mexican Style Shredded Pork
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This is one tasty dish. From the list of ingredients I was expecting it to be really spicy, but instead it has a very pleasant flavor. It's perfectly paired with the lime-flavored rice. More, please! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Mexican Style Shredded Pork
- Place pork in a slow cooker and season with salt. Place chiles and garlic on top of roast. Pour in the chipotle sauce and 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook on low for 7hrs. In a pot cook remaining 2 3/4 cups water (I used chicken broth) and rice to a boil. Mix in lime juice and cilantro. Reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes.
Remove roast and shred meat using two forks. Put meat back in slow cooker to absorb juices for 15-20minutes. Serve over cooked rice.
