Ridiculously simple. Very tasty. This is on the mild side because Mr. Wonderful likes his food a bit tame. You can easily add jalapenos to turn up the heat.

  1. Turn the crock pot on to high while you chop the onions and slice the garlic.
  2. Dump everything in the pot; cut the meat into 2-3 pieces so the sauce covers everything.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours.
  4. Degrease the sauce.
  5. Shred the meat.
  6. Serve with chopped avocado and a dollop of sour cream, if you like.

This may be ridiculously simply but it is also ridiculously delicious. My husband said give it 10 stars. Followed recipe except I used a pork tenderloin. We made soft tacos with the meat but could be a filling for a variety of mexican fare. Thanks for a great recipe.

Easy and delicious! I did kick it up a little with about 1/4 cup of sliced jalapenos from a jar. That was just enough heat for us. DS rolled his up in a tortilla with Cheddar cheese and sour cream. I was thinking this mixture would be awesome in a chimichanga. Thanks for sharing. *Made for Fall PAC 2008*

Wow, this was great! Just made this tonight and my kids ate all that was given to them! My husband said this was a bomb dinner, and we will be putting this into our rotation! Thanks for a great recipe! I made as said, only I also used pork tenderloin, about 3.77 lb. Super easy and super delicious! I also made homemade whole wheat tortillas from another recipe on here. Yum!
