We are a Mexican loving family.  We love all these flavors and make all kinds of tacos, fajitas, and nachos. 

This is great because you can serve over rice or add to a tortilla or BOTH!.  This makes a great burrito bowl type recipe. It’s gluten free and dairy free (just leave out the sour cream and cheese).

  • 1 onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 2 lb boneless pork loin roast
  • 16 oz jar green salsa
  • rice
  • tortillas


  • sour cream
  • grated cheese
  • avocado


  • Set slow cooker to low and add the pork roast.
  • Quarter the onion and slice pepper and pu on top of roast.
  • Pour green salsa on top.
  • Cook 6-8 hours or until pork falls apart.
  • About 30 minutes before it’s done, start the rice.  You will also need to shred the pork now too.  This should be very easy because it should  just fall apart using 2 forks.
  • After you get the rice started, prepare your items to top the salsa verde.  Simply shred the cheese and slice the avocado.

That’s it!  This is so easy to make and delicious.  My kids don’t eat the rice.  We just roll up the meat, peppers, and toppings in a tortilla and they love it.  Hope you enjoy.

    This was so good and easy! We used it in tacos and didn’t make the rice. Yum!

    This looks good. Never thought about putting pork chops in the crock pot.

    Can’t wait to try this! I’ve been teaching my 9 and 7 year old how to cook lately and they will LOVE this because it’s easy and they can do it themselves!
