Slow Cooker Green Chili Pork Tacos

Talk about a simple and satisfying meal! I have been singing praises of crock pot meals forever, they are just so simple and great for weeknight meals. This recipe is from one of my favorite food blogs of late, Let's Dish.

I served these with guacamole, and some feta cheese. I love using feta or goat cheese in Mexican dishes. I planned on making smashed black beans as well but I ran out of time and we ended up being completely satisfied with just the tacos anyway. I used a 1.5 lb roast and a jar of Rosa Mexicano Salsa Verde de Habanero and this fed Casey and I for two nights.



Ingredients:
1 (5 pound) pork roast
1 (16 oz.) bottle salsa verde (green salsa)
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
3 roma tomatoes, chopped
Corn or flour tortillas

Directions:
Place pork roast in slow cooker. Mix together salsa verde and lime juice and pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours. Meanwhile, mix together onion and cilantro in a small bowl; refrigerate. About one hour before serving, remove pork from slow cooker and shred with two forks. Return to slow cooker, and stir in about 1/2 cup of the onion and cilantro mixture. To serve, place pork mixture into tortillas. Top with onion and cilantro mixture and chopped tomatoes.

I feel like all I ever say in my comments here is "Yum." How boring!

But, still... OMG. YUM!

This sounds a lot like my pork chile verde recipe, but better. Will have to try!

I made these tonight except with chicken. The pork was not on sale. A little sour cream, cheddar cheese, lime....Oh. My. Goodness. SO DANG GOOD! SO easy! Thank you!

I have a question......... in your narrative you said you used a 1.5 pound roast but the ingredient list has a 5 pound roast.... which is it?

Christina said... [Reply to comment]

The original recipe calls for a 5 lbs roast. If you want to stick to the original recipe, follow the ingredient list. However, I decided to use a 1.5 lb roast and a whole jar of salsa since we didn't need so much meat and I like things extra spicy. I followed the rest of the recipe as listed but just reduced the amount of meat.

Just made these, and I have to say they are wonderful! I used a 1 lb. pork roast, and it was so juicy and full of flavor. All of your suggested toppings worked perfectly. I added feta cheese and avocado slices to cool the dish down. I'll definitely make this easy and delicious meal again.
