Crockpot Pork and Pinto Beans

I made this tonight and it was a BIG hit! We put the meat and beans into taco shells and topped it with cheese. Delicious! I didn't have carrots or celery on hand, so I omitted those items. It was so good. I found the recipe here.

Crockpot Pork and Pinto Beans:
Pork and Pinto Beans
1 pound dried pinto beans
1 boneless Pork Loin roast (3 to 4 pounds), halved
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
5 medium carrots, chopped (optional)
4 celery ribs, chopped (optional)
1-1/2 cups water
2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
2 tablespoons chili powder
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Dash pepper
2 packages (10-1/2 ounces each) corn tortilla chips or 30 corn tortillas (10 inches)
Chopped green onions, sliced ripe olives, chopped tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and/or shredded lettuce
Sort beans and rinse with cold water. Place beans in a Dutch oven;
add water to cover by 2 in. Bring to a boil; boil for 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat; cover and let stand for 1 to 4 hours or until
beans are softened.
Drain and rinse beans, discarding liquid. Place roast in a 5-qt. slow
cooker. In a bowl, combine the beans, tomatoes, carrots, celery,
water, chilies, chili powder, garlic, cumin, oregano and pepper.
Pour over roast. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours. Reduce heat to
low; cook 5 hours longer or until beans are tender.
Remove meat, shred with two forks and return to slow cooker. With a
slotted spoon, serve meat mixture over corn chips or in tortillas;
serve with toppings of your choice. Yield: 10 servings. Print Friendly and PDF Pin It
