  1. This was incredibly flavorful, and very simple!! A new favorite in the house!

  2. I’ve never made these before, but I made a double batch. Why? Because I’ve never had a bad recipe from you. I followed the recipe, except I added a little more chili powder, cumin and I added minced onion. I also used New Mexico Hatch chili salsa.

    This was fantastic! Both my wife and I loved it. Thank you!

  3. How would a boneless pork loin work in this recipe?

      Hi Thomas. I think it would work great! May take a bit longer like 6 to 8 hours on low. You could add a bit more liquid like 1/2 cup of water or chicken stock if you’d like a bit more juice. Let me know how it turns out! Thanks! -Amy

  4. I love all your recipes! If you could add how many the recipe serves, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
