This is a Mexican recipe that is quite popular around here. People from all over come to Southwest Kansas just so that they can order these at a VERY popular restaurant. A friend of mine just gave me her recipe for this. You might want to try it for yourselves and see how well it compares to the original. We're going to!!! I thought that the former residents of Kansas who now live in other parts of the world would appreciate getting this recipe so that they can eat these at other times than just when they are in Kansas.
3 pounds pork roast
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 chopped onion
2 chopped jalepenos (if you enjoy hot, hot food)
1 can Rotel
2 cans pork chili sauce
1 can crushed tomatoes
shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese
shredded or finely chopped lettuce
hot sauce (optional)
Place your raw roast into your crockpot. Add the onion, garlic powder and jalapenos if you want to use them. Cook until done. Using your spoon and fork, tear the roast apart until it is at the point that it can be put on tortillas--there should be no large pieces left that could choke anyone. Leave in crockpot.
Now, add your Rotel, chili sauce and can of crushed tomatoes. Cook the whole batch together all day OR all night until very tender and the flavors have mingled well. All day is sufficient if you will be eating it for your evening meal. If you will be serving it for lunch, let it cook all night.
When about ready to serve, fry your flour tortillas in a skillet with cooking oil of your choice. Set aside to drain any excess. Allow each person to garnish their tortilla and meat mixture with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, etc. Have hot sauce available for anyone who might want to use it.
