"I come to Taste of Home for simple and down home recipes like this. I halved the recipe and that worked out just fine. I love the taste of potatoes and pork like this. Very tasty. Thanks for sharing."

"My husband and I loved this recipe! It was a little spicy for us on its own, so we made burritos. We stuffed flour tortillas with a generous portion of the shredded pork and potatoes and included a layer of pinto beans, sour cream, and cheddar cheese to reduce the heat."

"Prepared this dish for dinner last night, overall the flavors were good, but you definitely need to add more salt. It turns out bland with the recommended serving. Overall though it was pretty good."
