Super easy and super delicious. I mistakenly used a pork tenderloin instead of a pork loin and it still worked great. I served the pork on onion burger buns and not a drop was left on anyone's plate. Read More

Sorry...but this just wasn't good. My husband & I thought that all you could taste was the chili powder and it totally masked all the other flavors like the green chilis etc. There was nothing tex-mex about it. Unfortunately I cannot recommend this at all. Sorry. Read More

Scrumdidlyumptious! I was embarrased from all the compliments I got for making this one. My father thought it should be sold frozen at grocery stores - which I strongly object to but hey it's that good. One thing...I didn't have tomato sauce or chiles so I just pureed a can of rotel. It worked just wonderfully. In fact I think I will just keep doing that since it turned out so great. Thank you so much Letha! Read More

Really great quick easy recipe. The pork comes out tender and flavorful. I served it with warmed tortillas shredded cheese fresh tomatoes and lettuce and sour cream. Delish. Seems like you can adjust the heat based on the type of barbeque sauce you use. I used a well-known brand that made the sauce sweeter than I would have liked - next time I'll search for a sauce that is low on sugar. Read More

This was very good. I cooked in my slow cooker. I had it on 4 hours it was cooked. I turned down the heat added an extra can of tomato sauce and BBQ sauce left on low the rest of the day. Served on onion hamburger buns. Everyone loved it. Read More

This is an awesome recipe. I mixed the sauce ingredients together the night before so in the morning all I had to do was place it all in the crockpot. Extremely easy and tasty! Read More

I altered it just a little by boiling a pork roast until tender then shredding and adding to the slow cooker with the sauce....VERY TASTY results. We served it on taco shells and our 12 yr old daughter made a taco salad with it. thank you for the recipe. Read More

I loved this recipe it was a nice change of pace from the normal tacos i made.. i did the same thing as another cook i substituted the tomato sauce for chipoltes in adobe sauce and it was a great spicy dish. I topped it with guac tomatoes cheese and sour cream i recommend it if your looking for a twist on the average taco! Read More

I'm reviewing this recipe for my mother who does not have access to a computer but found this recipe in the Allrecipe cookbook. She used beef rather than pork and said this dish had a nice combination of flavors. The meat was tender and it made good sandwiches. Would make again. Thanks for sharing Letha. Read More
