“I love using my Crock Pot and just happend to throw stuff from my pantry in a pot and there you go. The first time I made this, it was almost too hot to eat. Now I crave it. I've changed it here and there, so hopefully this recipe is the final one I came up with.”
10hrs 30mins

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 lbs pork roast
  • 4 dried red chilies
  • 12 sliced onion
  • 2 garlic, cloves crushed
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and cut in half
  • salt and pepper


  1. Toss all ingredients in a Crock pot and cook for min 10 hours (usually I'll start this the night before and let cook all night).
  2. Take out roast and strain the broth, reserving about 3 cups.
  3. Take all the"stuff" you strained out and put into a blender (you'll get a nice paste mixture).
  4. Mix in some of the reserved broth (but you don't want it to be too running) and blend once more.
  5. Shread your pork and place into a large bowl.
  6. Now mix all the stuff you blended into the meat.
  7. Make sure to taste it and adjust if you need more broth or salt and pepper.
  8. Spread mixture on your prepared masa or on a burrito shell.
  9. It's wonderfully flavored.
