Salsa Verde Pork Tacos with Spanish Rice

Family Tested... All Approve!

I love my crock-pot and easy meals that taste like I slaved over the oven all day! Look no further, this meal idea came from At Chef in Training! My entire family agrees that it's a keeper{and once a week-er!}

Salsa Verde Pork Tacos
2 lbs pork {roast or picnic cut}
kosher salt
1 jar salsa verde 
1 small can of diced green chilies
1 tsp. cumin

Place your pork in the crock- pot. Sprinkle kosher salt on top. Next pour your salsa verde and then your diced green chilies over. Last sprinkle cumin. Cook 6-8 hours on low. 

Remove pork from crock-pot and shred...oh it just falls apart- so good! Serve in shells with cilantro, cheese and sour cream. 

Spanish Rice
1 cup white rice
1 Tbs. butter
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup chunky salsa
1/2 tsp. chili powder

Melt butter in a sauce pan, add your rice. Brown the rice and then pour in the chicken broth, salsa and chili powder. Return to boil, cover and simmer 20 minutes or until tender. If the rice still is not fully done, add more chicken broth {cover} and continue to cook. Just keep testing it until you like it!

I guarantee thumbs up!

  1. Looks like a good meal, and love that all loved it!

  2. Looks yummy! It is so rare that I find a meal that all approve of! Are you feeling out of your funk yet? It must be that time of year...seems like a lot of us are feeling it! So many ideas in my head...so little motivation to do anything!!! Hope you have a great week my friend!

  3. Looks terrific, Jen. I'll have to give this one a try. Since moving to this area, we've been eating a lot more Mexican food thanks to the Mennomex - a local Mexican food store run by Mennonites (weird, but true). We get the most amazing local tortillas - something completely unusual in CANADA.

    Hope you'll share this at the All Star Block Party!!

  4. Oh we love us some verde pork! I'll be testing this out on the "hard to please" Mr. B for sure Jen! I can't see anything in it he does not like! (is it the weekend yet???)
