Today, I have a yummy pork recipe for you all that you make in the slow cooker. This meat was fabulous in tacos, but would also be great for enchiladas, quesadillas, or burritos! Any way you serve this up will definitely make your family happy. It has that nice balance of spice and sweetness that I LOVE!

This is also another great recipe that you could double and freeze have for another time. You can do tacos the first time and the second time make burritos with the meat from the freezer. This is something that I love to do and is a great time saving tip.
