Taco! Taco!

We all love a recipe we can put in the crock pot early in the day and have a delicious dinner ready with no fuss.  This pork recipe is great served as a lettuce taco or on a plate.  It makes a lot of meat which can be used in other dishes later in the week, heated up as leftovers, or frozen for later use.  We serve ours with the Avocado Radish Salsa but there are so many options with this versatile dish!

Note:  We also make these tacos using blackened shrimp and serve with the Avocado Radish Salsa.
