Number of Servings: 6


    1.5 lbs of leftover shredded pork shoulder
    4 oz of tomato sauce
    4 oz of green chiles
    .5 tablespoon of chili powder
    1 teaspoons of cayenne pepper
    .5 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
    1/4 teaspoon of paprika
    1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
    1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    salt and pepper, to taste
    avocado to garnish


Cook pork in lightly greased saucepan on medium heat. Pour in tomato sauce and green chiles and stir.
Place dry ingredients in and stir again.
Cover the pan up, put on low heat, and forget about it for 20 minutes. Itís like that rotisserie chicken commercial, set it and forget it!
Then garnish with fresh avocados and eat up! Eat fast because I promise you it will not last.
