Crock Pot Pork Tacos

My friend, Chris, gave me his recipe for a salsa verde crock pot pork...I made a variation of it using what I had on hand.

Depending on how much time you have, you can either cookin the crock pot on high for 4-6 hours or low all day.

2 pork tenderloins - cubed
1 can green chilis
a small palmful of cumin
a good shake or two of Adobo seasoning
1 small onion
1/2 red bell pepper
3 cloves garlic

I had some leftover pork tenderloin in the freezer from when I make the crispy pork tenderloins, so I thawed it out & cubed it.

Get out your handy dandy food processor and mince up the pepper, onion & garlic. Pour onto the pork.  (Yes, I am in dire need of a manicure - I'm embarrassed)

Dump in the green chilis... sprinkle with Adobo seasoning & add cumin. Combine well.

Now just cover it & let it do it's thang all day.

When it's done, it will be very tender.  You can kind of stir it and break up/shred the pork a bit with a spoon. If it needs it, add a little won't need much if any at all.

 Fill your taco shells (or tortillas) with the pork & top with your favorite taco adornments.

Wow. This is the first time I've done it like this. My friend, Chris, gave me the inspiration. They are really flavorful and so tender and delicious. They'd be great on corn tortillas with some cilantro, but Jim doesn't care for cilantro, so we just did the normal taco fixin's. Really delicious. Thanks to Chris for the idea!

No problem. I'm happy that I inspired you. I use some salsa verda sauce but now I'm going to try your way.
