It was probably spicy because the recipe calls for 2 chiles from one can of Chipotle chiles not 2 cans. I made that mistake years ago and it was way too spicy. :)
I used 4 lbs of pork tenderloin - turned out great (yes it does shred perfectly)! Also added a can of Ro-Tel, 1/2 can of Bud LIght Lime, 1 diced onion and 1/2 can of chicken broth (add more as needed). Served with shredded cabbage in addition to the toppings above.
Very spicy! Excellent flavor, but next time I'll use only one can of chiles. Once the pork was removed from the slow cooker, I added more OJ and lime juice, plus a little white vinegar to cut the heat.
I would give this 5 stars for ease of preparation. However, despite putting in extra cumin and oregano, it came out rather bland. I did end up with 3 pounds of tender pulled pork and I'll doctor it up with BBQ sauce. Update. I pulled some out of the freezer a month later. Defrosted meat, put it in a flour tortilla with some cheddar cheese and micro-waved it. It was some good!
Tried these today but was a bit confused. The description (top of recipe) talked about using fresh tomatoes but they were not called for in the recipe. Which is wrong; the recipe or description? Loved them either way and will definitely make again. Rave reveiws from my husband!
Absolutely delicious! I added one sliced onion to the slow cooker (1/2 on bottom, 1/2 on top) and it turned out so good. Definitely a keeper.
I used a 4 pound tenderloin roast because I was looking for something a little healthier. I followed the recipe exactly other than that. It was dry when shredding but came to life after adding the cooking liquid (excess fat skimmed). Definitely a keeper.
Absolutely delicious, easy meal. Highly recommended!!!
