Southwestern Pulled Pork Recipe

The best way to describe this tender pork recipe is "yummy!" Bottled barbecue sauce, canned green chilies and a few other kitchen staples make preparation fast and easy. We like to wrap the seasoned pork in flour tortillas. -Jill Hartung Colorado Springs, Colorado

The whole family loves this! The neighbors came over cause they smelled the deliciousness! Have made many times and will make many more! Didn't change a thing to the recipe.

Made this recipe for my wife's birthday party. We had it as is with only a little sour cream on tortillas, some had it on buns. 20 out of 20 people at the party gave it a resounding thumbs up. Excellent recipe.

This was excellent. I did not use the green chilies. Be sure to trim the fat off your pork so that the sauce is not fatty.

My family did enjoy this recipe. I did have to add about a teaspoon of season salt and a few shakes of Mrs. Dash Chipotle seasoning. The tomato, lettuce, sour cream and avocado really send this to a special place on the taste bud scale. Yum-ola! It makes a bunch so I hope it will freeze well. I found the recipe in my Best of Country-Slow Cooker recipe book Vol. 2.
