Slow Cooker Mexican Pulled Pork

Posted Nov 19 2011 10:16pm

Hola!  <- (Seems appropriate, given the title of this post)

Last night was fun.  It was our friends, Tori and Jess’, 21st birthdays:

That’s just them breakin’ it down :) .  Fun fact: they’re fraternal twins!

Jess and I:

Some of the girls:

Discovered my dress was completely see-through after this picture- that’s always fun.

Daniel (one of our groomsmen) and I showed up in matching leather jackets, to brave the frigid 75 degree Florida cold:

Started my morning off the same way it’s been starting for about 6 weeks.  With eggs:

scrambled eggwhites

This time I got fancy with it and scrambled one egg + one egg white, melted some Meunster cheese and topped it all of with some fresh basil.  Since I gave up the two glorious “B’s” (bread and beer) until the wedding, eggs have become my friend instead of my usual oatmeal or cereal.

Lots has been going on this week!

I’ll have more on the wedding crafts later :) .

Last weekend was pretty special for us.  Corey was inducted into his high school’s sports Hall of Fame as an outstanding athlete in both football and basketball.

Corey gave a great speech.  I was so proud :) .

Not so proud of my camera, though!

Corey and his parents:

Alright, onto the recipe!

This one is a cinch. Gotta love slow cooker dinners!  You can serve the meat in taco shells, or just as it is.

Slow Cooker Mexican Pulled Pork 

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

1.2 lbs pork roast (I used an end that was on sale)

1/2 onion, sliced

1 small can diced green chiles

1 can enchilada sauce

1/2 cup water

1/2 tablespoon cumin

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

Directions:

Place the roast in the pot first, then pour the other ingredients over top and give it a big stir.  Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on Low for 6-7 hours.

The after picture of this dinner is just embarrassing.  Corey didn’t get home from class until TEN, and I typically wait until he’s home to eat dinner, so I was starving and just piled everything on my plate as fast as I could.

I topped the pork with fresh salsa and served it with fat-free refried beans (I had a serious craving for them, which is weird) and roasted broccoli with cheese.  It was great!

Other recent meals:

Lots of salad topped with veggie burger and goat cheese.  For this particular one, I added in a few of these that I randomly picked up from Whole Foods:

I made Ina Garten’s Engagement Chicken last week, which is always a favorite of Corey’s:

And last, but not least…a bowl full of Shiritaki Spaghetti topped with bolognese from Williams-Sonoma that I got as a bridal shower gift:

tofu noodles

These noodles may be the greatest invention ever, especially since pasta definitely falls under my “no bread, no beer” rule.  They are made out of tofu, and the entire bag has 40 calories!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a date with these two:

I’m deep cleaning the entire house in preparation for the family and friends that will be staying with us during the upcoming wedding week!

In case you’re keeping track: ONE WEEK UNTIL OUR WEDDING! :)

Have a great day!
