Week #1 recipe

Part of my New Years resoloution was to try a new recipe every week. Thanks to Princess Cat via online discussion this morning, she has turned a meal of a simple pork roast into ...

Ta Dah!


3-4 lb port loin roast
1/2 - 3/4 tsp garlic powder (I think I used a full heaping tsp ... I love garlic)
1 Tbsp cumin
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp salt
1 tsp oregano
1 sm can diced green chilies
1 lb dried pinto beans

put all ingredients in crock-pot with meat on top. Cover with water.
Cook 6 hrs on high. Break up meat and cook 30 mins on high.

serve with taco fixins

Makes 7 LARGE servings

The other good news is, I do not have to cook, the new crock pot gets christened, and from what Cat says "a lot of leftovers"!

No cooking tommorow either.

The way this recipe was introduced to me was on top of a pile of fritos but you could use it for tacos, a taco salad, etc instead.

SOOO yummy though!

And those LARGE servings I think are for homegrown midwestern farm boys ...
