There are so many reasons why pulled pork is a good thing.

Here are some:

-It’s so easy to make, just add all ingredients to a slow cooker and forget about it until it’s time to eat;

-The house smells really good while it’s cooking;

-You can make a lot of things with it or just eat it as is;

-Leftovers can easily be repurposed by using them for an entirely different recipe (like these taquitos);

-It’s super tender;

-It’s a good reason to pull the slow cooker out of the cupboard and use it if you haven’t used it for awhile;

-It tastes wonderful with barbecue sauce; and

-It makes amazingly great soft tacos.

I just can’t help but mention something about what a good deal a pork roast can be when it’s on sale.

I like to walk by the meat case each time I’m in the grocery store to see what’s on sale.

And when pork roasts are on a great sale, it’s a good time to stock up…if there’s enough room left in my freezer that is.

This pulled pork is seasoned with south-of-the-border flavors including two types of chili powder, cumin and Mexican oregano so it has a spicy bite to it.

When making a sandwich out of this pulled pork, an option is to use American cheese which melts in every nook and cranny of the pork and tastes really good when topped with sliced nacho jalapeno peppers (this delicious sandwich is also included below).

When serving this scrumptious pulled pork as is, here are some side dishes to go with it you may like “Potato Salad with Egg“, “Homestyle Elbow Macaroni Salad” and “Baked Herb and Parmesan Potato Slices(this is one of the most popular recipes on this blog).

Let’s check out the ingredients.
