Southwest Pulled Pork Recipe

Publisher Photo
I made this on a whim one Sunday morning when friends called and said they planned to drop by in the afternoon. It makes a lot, and I was able to serve our friends and the neighbors a casual supper. The seasonings and green chilies give the meat a spicy kick and taste fantastic with cool sour cream and fresh salsa. —Deb LeBlanc, Phillipsburg, Kansas

These were awesome. Even my super picky son loved them, and he doesn't like much.

This is the first pulled pork recipe I have ever tried. My husband doesn't care for BBQ sauce and this was delicious and so easy to make. I was worried it would be a bit spicy as in hot spicy,but it wasn't. It was spicy as in flavor. I may add more Jalapenos next time just to give it a kick,but I highly recommend this recipe :)

Quick and easy, think I'll add a little more 'heat' next time. Was moist and very tender. I'll keep this recipe - Thanks!!
