slow cooker green chili pork tacos – townie
i really had low expectations for this one. a pork loin, some salsa verde and a little lime juice?? well i was wrong — this came out really good — and of course the cilantro added a ton of good flavor! unfortunately i didnt have fresh tomatoes, so i drained some canned ones really well instead.
