SLOW COOKER GREEN CHILI PORK TACOS
1 (5 pound) pork roast
1 (16 oz.) bottle salsa verde (green salsa)
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
3 roma tomatoes, chopped
Place pork loin in slow cooker. Mix together salsa verde and lime juice and pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours. Meanwhile, mix together onion and cilantro in a small bowl; refrigerate. About one hour before serving, remove pork from slow cooker and shred with two forks. Return to slow cooker, and stir in about 1/2 cup of the onion and cilantro mixture. To serve, place pork mixture into corn tortillas. Top with onion and cilantro mixture and chopped tomatoes.
This is so simple and easy, but so good! My husband prefers flour tortillas, but I like these tacos better with corn tortillas. Either way is fine though. And of course, you could always serve it with additional taco toppings, like cheese, sour cream or guacamole. I usually chop the onion and cilantro in a food processor to make things even easier. You could also use this as a burrito filling (definitely go with flour tortillas in that case) with the addition of some rice and beans.
Who Dished It Up First
I'm sure I'm not the first person to dump a jar of salsa over a pork roast in a slow cooker, but as far as I know, this is an original recipe.
