Simple, Sweet Pork...

After having my hubby crave Costa Vida Sunday night, I went hunting for a sweet pork recipe Monday...
I found this one on recipezaar.


  1. Place ingredients in a greased slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW heat for 8-10 hours.
  2. Shred pork with a fork. Keep lid off after shredding for about 15 minutes so juice will thicken.
  3. Use meat in burritos, tacos, or salads.
  4. If freezing, keep juice and freeze with meat.
we ate it with fresh salsa, tortillas, and our favorite toppings... have some left to freeze. It was so yummy!

Black Bean...Salsa?

I'm not quite sure what to even call this. My friend, Nat told me the recipe over the phone, from memory, and I am typing it on the computer, from memory. So forgive me if it is not what it was originally, but I made it just this afternoon, and it was delish! My while family loves this, and we consider it a meal.

2 cans black beans (rinsed)
1 can corn
1 big can diced tomatoes (I like the petite diced)
2 avocados, diced
1 package Good Seasons Zesty Italian dressing (made according to package directions, but use balsamic vinegar)
Green Onions

Serve with Tostitos Hint of Lime tortilla chips
