What a great thread!

I made this the other night, my husband went nuts over it (and it's super easy):

Mexican Pork

1 pound pork boneless loin roast, cut into 1" pieces
20-oz. jar chunky salsa
15-oz. can pinto beans, rinsed and drained

Mix pork and salsa in a 3-4 quart slow cooker and cover. Cook on low for 6-8 hours until pork is tender. Add beans, cover crockpot, and cook 10-15 minutes until hot. 4 servings.

Calories: 300

Sodium: 1100 mg
Vitamin C: 40% DV

(I'm thinking you can cut down the sodium by being choosy on the brand of canned salsa and beans - I always look for ones marked "low sodium")

Hmm, well, if it were me, I'd bring it all to a boil (after you saute) and then turn down on medium low for about an hour while it lets the flavors brew.
Enjoy!

I just came here to post this recipe!! I used 1/2cup bbq (actually finished up two dif types) and 1/4cup italian dressing. no sugar. no worcestershire. and 2 packs of 5 thighs each. I placed sliced onions on the bottom of the crock pot and threw everything on top. It was on high for 4-5 hours. Then, I didn't fully shred, just sorta broke up the pieces a bit. I had it on a chopped salad and my children had it with salad and ranch dressing on the side. I keep picking at it. It is tooo good. But I cannot put it away yet b/c I am waiting for DH to come home and eat it.
I've already set up a tupper of salad covered with this chicken for lunch tomorrow. YUM! Next time I will try it with fat free dressing. My expectation is that it will be as good :)
