It's Mexican Night!

Holy Moly is this easy recipe easy and delicious and so great for you (think all natural ingredients and paleo-ish)

Follow it exactly or deviate a bit - I can't see how it would turn out wrong!

-2 to 3 pounds of pork (I used 2.9 pounds Boston butt)
-1 14oz can of diced tomatoes (or equivalent of fresh tomatoes), if possibly, buy organic and no added ingredients
-1/2 BBQ sauce (I used closer to 3/4 given my meat size - I used Daddy Sam's which is gluten free)
-1 4oz can of diced green chilis
-1 jalapeno
-1 small sweet onion
-4 garlic cloves
-1.5 limes juiced (keep the other 1/2 for your beverage!!)
-1/2 orange juiced
-1 tablespoon of agave
-shakes (no measurement involved) of garlic salt, garlic pepper, cumin, chili chipotle seasoning

Ok, now onto..
1. Throw meat in the crockpot, ingredients and seasoning on top, cover, simmer for 8 hours.

Wasn't that easy? Okay, well, fine. Dice the onion, garlic, jalapeno's, chilis (if not already diced). Yup, that's it!
Uncover and serve with either lettuce for a wrap or on its own. Don't forget avocado! The amazing dish after 7-8 hours on low.

Now, no Mexican meal is complete without a Margarita. Here's a super awesome/potent margarita (I think even Robb Wolf would approve of this one)!

-1.5 patron tequila
-1 shot patron citron
-1/2 lime (use the other leftover half from dinner)
-seltzer water

1. Mix ingredients over ice. Stir. Squeeze 1/2 of lime. Devour (safely) with your meat!

Can't wait until next time. Expect a special Easter post from me. I've got a cute thing up my sleeve :)
