    Quite flavorful, but if you like something with more kick, use the salsa rather than the diced tomatoes or add some hot sauce to the tomatoes. - 2/9/11

    I started too late in the day to use my slow cooker so I made this in a dutch oven on top of the stove. I also used what I had on hand......two cans of low fat refried black beans and Trader Joe's peach salsa. I sauteed the onion after browning the pork. Yummy and just a hint of sweetness. - 7/23/10

    I agree with you. I forgot to say in the instructions that I usually take out the roast and then drain the beans and tomatoes in a colander. I can't figure out how to change the recipe now, though. Sometimes I also use 3 cans of black beans, and this helps a little too.

  • It would be nice if you stated what size bottle of salsa to use. I figured a guess would work and it did. As you suggested in the comments, I drained off the extra liquid. I shredded the pork, mixed it altogether and served it in a tortilla with lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream. Yum! - 10/1/12

  • I used Rotelle tomatoes--gave it a nice "kick". My 2 smaller chunks of pork got a bit dry. We served it with Black Bean Quinoa--went together very well! - 9/10/12

  • I added a total of 3 cans of black beans drained and rinsed, to cut back on the sodium, 1 cn. of Green Chilies, and 1 can of Tomatoes (oregano, Basil, Garlic) along with the jar of salsa...served as burritos with shredded lettuce inside! It gave it a little more flavor with a Tex-Mex taste! Thanks - 8/3/10

  • Delicious! I used medium Pace Salsa and a 2.5 pound pack of pork tenderloin (two seperate pieces so they cooked faster) from Costco. 5 hours on high in the crockpot. So flavorful! I had it plain, everyone else ate it as a burrito filling. Froze the second half to take camping next week! - 5/27/10
