“This is a nice pork recipe from Crisco. It's one of the few ways I'll eat pork, and the salsa is a great add-in to soup if you have any left over (I'm only cooking for two, so I usually reduce the amount of pork which leaves me with quite a bit of salsa). Good when served with refried beans, rice, and fresh corn tortillas. Note: When adding the salt, keep in mind that the corn and tomatoes will add more to the mixture!”
