  • Pork Chalupas

    I made this the other night and was happy with the outcome..It tastes like a Mexican taco or burro filling...Made as is it was a little tame. Add a chopped Jalapeno or taco packet. This smelled sooooo good. The kids kept going into the kitchen and looking in the pot!
    Eat it like tacos or eat it with Fritos with all the taco or nacho toppings. This was good either way..We had lots of left overs so we did the Frito thing the next day for lunch.

    "A simple slow cooker meal! Pork roast is cooked all day with pinto beans in a seasoned sauce then shredded. Serve on tortillas with sour cream, salsa, and cheese or your favorite toppings. Great for small gatherings because it makes a ton. Freezes well too for quick meals later."

    1 (4 pound) pork shoulder roast
    1 pound dried pinto beans
    3 (4 ounce) cans diced green
    chile peppers
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    2 tablespoons ground cumin
    2 tablespoons salt
    2 tablespoons dried oregano
    2 tablespoons garlic powder
    12 flour tortillas

    1. Place the roast inside a slow cooker coated with cooking spray. In a separate bowl, stir together the beans, 2 cans of the chile peppers, chili powder, cumin, salt, oregano, and garlic powder. Pour the whole mixture over the roast, and add enough water so that the roast is mostly covered. Jiggle the roast a little to get some of the liquid underneath.
    2. Cover, and cook on Low for 8 to 9 hours. Check after about 5 hours to make sure the beans have not absorbed all of the liquid. Add more water if necessary 1 cup at a time. Use just enough to keep the beans from drying out.
    3. When the roast is fork-tender, remove it from the slow cooker, and place on a cutting board. Remove any bone and fat, then shred with forks. Return to the slow cooker, and stir in the remaining can of green chilies. Heat through, and serve with flour tortillas and your favorite toppings.

      Wish..Sorry I forgot the cumin! Edited the original. This is good..The fresh chopped onion is a great idea. I did add fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder! Enjoy...
