Slow Cooker Saturday: Sweet Pork Baked Taquitos


Sing along with me...

Okay kidding. You don't have to sing, unless you really want to, then you can. You can make me feel better for once gain quoting a movie...although really who can't quote at least a little bit from So I Married an Axe Murderer.

So many gems all from the same movie.

I won't digress and quote them all.

I will get right to why you all come around on Saturdays...

The Slow Cooker recipe. Slow Cooker Saturday is here.

Well, I am assuming that is why you come around on Saturday.

I guess you could come for my random and sometime unrecognizable movie or song quotes.

You could be stopping by for a dose of my witty repartee...I can be a hoot sometimes. At least I crack myself up.

Yeah, I am gonna take a chance and say you are here for the recipe.

Definitely the recipe.

Today's recipe is so dang yummy. SO yummy.

Wait, is it yummy?

Why yes, yes it is.

I got two thumbs up from the boys. Hubby couldn't stop sneaking bites of the meat, which was heavenly so I can't blame him.

The ingredients are basic, simple and few. Just how I like it.

The result is delicious, yummy, delectable...

Redundant much?

I just am trying to tell you guys how great this is.

So, it was yummy.

You throw the meat in the slow cooker in the am. Shred it when it is done. Wrap it up in a tortilla and sprinkle some cheese on top. Then bake it until golden and crispy.

Serve with ranch or sour cream.

Kind of perfect.

And I only say kind of because it could only be perfect if it was calorie free and I could eat five without the repercussions of more junk in the trunk.

Enjoy everyone. Happy Saturday. I hope you are all enjoying your slow cookers as much as I have.

Are you seriously posting another taquito recipe? You are making life much more difficult. How do I choose which one to make? Your original, that everyone asks for in our Moms Club, or go out on a tasty limb and try some of the new ones? What to do, what to do?
