      Mmmmmmmmm this is so awesome! The smallest pork shoulder I could get was 4 lbs. and I thought it was boneless but as it turned out, there was a bone. So I probably had about 3.5 lbs after trimming. I used one extra large onion and a 7 oz can of chiles. I didn't measure the s&p, just sprinkled some on each batch as I browned the pork (had to do 4 batches). The only real change I made was to add 1 cup water along with the 1 cup chicken broth as I was afraid there wouldn't be enough liquid. It came up to just below the top of the meat and onions with the water. I now have some lovely pork/chicken broth which will be great in some soup. The meat itself is outstanding, especially in a tortilla with tomato, cheese & sour cream. Thanks *so much* for sharing this recipe!

      OMG this are so wonderful. Big chuncks of meat with saute onions and the touch of heat of the chilies. Wonderful conbination. Then piled high with cheese, tomatoes and sour cream. What's not to like. I made as directed, halving the recipe for the two of us and we'll have plenty for lunches this week. Thanks NM for posting.

      Made this for my brothers bday dinner. Did a little different. I cut the pork butt up into bite size pieces and seared it and then threw in the crockpot. Did half an onion, garlic salt, sprinkle of red pepper, and some cumin. At 5/12 hours I put in the oven at 450 degrees and baked for 15 minutes. Served with rice, beans, avacado, queso fresco,salsa, and tortillas. They all liked it!
