Spicy Crockpot Shredded Pork

I am always looking for yummy Mexican dishes. I could literally eat Mexican for every meal, every day. All sorts of leftovers find their way into a tortilla with salsa on top. Why not? It's a great portable meal! So, I was excited when I found this recipe. The original recipe had different measurements, but it turned out way too sweet. We like things spicy! So, here is my adapted recipe to make your mouth happy!

This recipe is amazingly easy. How can you beat having only 3 ingredients? You can brown the pork first, or just dump it all in the crockpot! Fantastic by itself, or serve in burritos, fajitas, or even as sandwich toppings!
You can even use leftover, already cooked pork for this recipe. Just put it all in the crockpot until it's warmed through.

Spicy Crockpot Shredded Pork

2 lb. pork
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups Pace Picante Salsa

In a crock pot add salsa and brown sugar. Mix and then put the roast in. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Half way thru flip the roast. After a few hours break it up into large chunks. An hour or so before serving shred it into small pieces, stir it all together. If it is a little runny still take the lid of and let it cook until it is the right consistency.

That's it!! Enjoy!
