Ingredients

Verde Sauce:

  • 1 onion
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 - 1 cup water (enough to thin down and blend)
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne or less if preferred
  • 1/2 tsp. Mexican oregano
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 2 jalapeños seeded
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 4-oz cans diced green chilies
  • 2 7-oz cans salsa verde (I used Herdez brand)
  • 5 lb. Smithfield Prime Boneless Center Cut Pork Loin

Jalapeno Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup Greek fat-free plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro
  • 3/4 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 3/4 Tbsp. water or more if needed to thin down
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1-2 jalapeños seeded
  • Juice from 1/4 of a lime

Instructions

  • In a blender, combine onion, celery, garlic, water, chili powder, coriander, cayenne, oregano, cumin, jalapeños, salt and pepper. Blend until consistency desired (much like a salsa thickness). Fold in 2 cans of green chilies.
  • In a pan, heat a bit of oil and brown the pork on all sides. Place in crock pot and pour verde sauce on top of the pork. Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours, or until the pork is tender and shreds easily.
  • Take pork out of crock pot and shred. Drain about 1/2 the liquid from the crock pot and place shredded meat back inside the crock pot. Add in the 2 cans of salsa verde and stir. Let heat through.
  • Make jalapeño sauce by blending together the yogurt, mayo, garlic, cilantro, vinegar, water, salt, pepper, jalapeños and lime juice. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.
  • When ready to serve, place shredded pork on taco shell and drizzle jalapeño sauce over the top. Also very good with sliced avocado, red onion, cilantro and cotija cheese. Enjoy!

Notes

(jalapeno sauce is easily doubled)
