    Really good, but I think it may have been easier to shred if I had let it cook in the slow cooker all day.

    Excellent! Our new favorite. The cilantro and queso fresco bring all of the flavors together at the end. Makes great leftovers, too!

    Delicious and easy- and I'm really NOT good at cooking things with meat. I forgot to get the Queso fresco, but had some french goat cheese on hand- it was REALLY good with the goat cheese.

    Great and easy recipe! Each time I make it, comes out better. I use the crock pot to slowly cook the pork. We like to eat it with tostadas instead of tortillas.

    This recipe is wonderful and always a hit. I have made the recipe as is several times over and always to great reviews. I even made this for my husband's birthday dinner last year, his request! You will love this recipe, it is so easy and delicious.

    Delicious! We added about 1/4 c. of cider vinegar because we like a vinegary sauce.

    Absolutely delicious! Even my pickiest of eaters loved this one, though some preferred a crunchy taco which was easy to accomodate. It is definitely a new family favorite. It was also very easy to make and the fact that you could leave it to cook for a while allowed me to get other things done while my house took on a delicious aroma. We used leftovers the next day on nacho chips as an after school snack.

    I'm curious--when you make this in the Crockpot, how long do you cook it?

    my husband makes a great pulled pork either in the crock pot or smoked over night, but all he does is pour apple cider vinegar with peppers in it over the pork-VERY simple
