Southwestern Pulled Pork

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

    This is an awesome recipe; I used homegrown jalapeno peppers to give it a nice heat instead of the canned green chilies! We tried it on the tortilla and absolutely loved it!!

    Turned out well, tasted the sauce at the end before shredding and made a few adjustments,, will try a different bbq sauce next time. Easy!

    This was delicious! I did pour off most of the sauce, however, and we ate it in fresh baked buns - yum:)

    Great combination of Mexican and BBQ! To make it even quicker to put together, I substituted the spices and green chilies for 8oz of our favorite salsa. This was an absolute hit! So good, there were no leftovers. Spray the inside of your slow cooker to make for easy clean up.

    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.
