What's for Dinner? Slow Cooker Green Chile Pork Tacos

This is another SUPER easy and SUPER delicious pork taco recipe.  This recipe made a ton, so we froze half for another time.  I still love the slow cooker pulled-pork tacos but this recipe has a much different flavor.  I hope you enjoy!

Slow Cooker Chile Verde Pork Roast (from www.letsdishrecipes.com)

Ingredients
--2.5 lb pork roast 
--16 oz bottle salsa verde (green salsa)
--3 tablespoons lime juice

Directions
1.  Place pork roast in slow cooker.
2.  Pour salsa verde and lime juice over roast.
3.  Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
4.  Remove pork from slow cooker and shred with two forks.
5.  Return to slow cooker and stir.

Serving Suggestions
-The original recipe suggested combining a chopped onion with one cup fresh chopped cilantro.  Then at the end, stir in one half of the onion cilantro mixture to the slow cooker and using the rest as a topping with chopped tomatoes. 
-I served with chopped tomatoes, avocado, shredded monterey jack cheese and sour cream.  
-I always serve a variety of tortillas and hard taco shells.
-I also served black beans with quinoa and corn bread.
