Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Enchilada Sauce

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Enchilada Sauce

I am finally back from my trip to Korea! We were there for a month and we had so much fun! I hadn’t seen my family in over 6 years, can you believe it? So it was wonderful to see them all. My two boys bonded with them instantly. Everything was great.

More on that later….

But today, I would like to share a very simple recipe that my family loves. If you own a slow cooker or a “crockpot”, you’re going to have to try this recipe. It’s simple. Easy. And most importantly, tasty, too. My husband is a huge fan of Mexican flavored dishes and one day, he asked me (politely) to make pulled pork using green enchilada sauce (or you can use red enchilada sauce if you prefer).

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Enchilada Sauce

The pictures in this post is pulled pork with red enchilada sauce but we like the green one slightly better!). I was skeptical at first but I am so glad I listened to him and tried it. Now I make this dish at least once a month or when we have guests over for dinner at our house.

Las Palmas

I normally use Las Palmas brand green chile enchilada sauce (mild or medium or hot, pick your favorite) but you can use any brand or even homemade sauce if you’d like. I wish I had a picture of pulled pork made with green sauce. It’s a bit uglier than the red one, obviously, but it tastes fantastic. I add chopped green chilies and corn sometimes, but it’s optional.

Wow… I just realized that the last time I posted a new recipe was back in August. It’s official. I’m a terrible blogger. I know I say this all the time but I have been really busy with life. Remember I was trying to lose weight? Well, I did it. I lost 43 lbs since April and I am happier with the way I look and feel now. I still have a few more pounds I want to lose but with my trip to Korea next week and everything else, that will have to wait until January. I will definitely do a post on my weight loss journey sometime, probably sometime in January when I get back.

I have two young boys. While my three-year-old will eat anything and everything, my six-year-old won’t. Although he is getting better at trying new things, he’s still reluctant to. But these meatballs, he devoured! You can imagine how happy that made me!

I love brownies… but then who doesn’t? As much as I love plain brownies, I also love adding toppings every now and then. I made these for a lesson I had to teach at my church and I was happy that it was such a hit!

Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin with Sweet Balsamic Glaze!

Slow cooker has been my best friend in the kitchen lately. It’s been hot and I really don’t like heating up the kitchen by using the stove and oven so much! So slow cooker has been more than convenient for me lately.

My six year old won’t eat anything but ham and cheese sandwiches or… ham and cheese sandwiches so it was a big surprise to me when he ate a plate full of these meatballs and wanted some more! You can imagine how excited I must have been! Finally, he likes something that I cooked!
