Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Pork

“I'm sharing this basic recipe for Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Pork with you today as a starting point for another recipe that I'll be sharing soon - one that utilizes the pork in a super yummy way. This pork, however, can be used for any type of tacos, taquitos, enchiladas or burritos. It's kind of a basic recipe that I often use in addition to my Green Chili and Lime Pulled Pork for tacos and such.  Since this makes way more shredded pork than I use for one dinner or dish, I often freeze some of it after it is done in the slow cooker for later use.  I freeze mine in disposable aluminum containers.  When I want to use it, I thaw it out in the fridge overnight and place the whole disposable container right into my slow cooker to heat the pork back up.” Angela

another use)
