These took literally 30 seconds to throw together and were amazing! I made them with red salsa instead of salsa verde, and they were just as good :)

Do you use pork loin or tenderloin?

Can I do this with a small pork loin (~1.3 lbs)? Or will it be too tough?

My whole family LOVES this. I actually use green enchilada sauce (Hatch, hot) and we like it better with that! I also grill the corn tortillas a bit in the hour after the onion/cilantro addition as I think it gives them a little more substance with the filling! But is is SO good!

This is wonderful! My family loved it and I know I will be making it regularly. This recipe is ridiculously easy to make and tastes amazing. I made it with 2 1/2lbs of boneless pork spareribs because that’s what I had in my refrigerator and Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde. It was awesome! Thanks for the great recipe!

I’ve made this several times, and it is always a big hit at our house and with our guests. Easy and delicious. I agree that it serves more than eight though. We have even frozen the leftovers to reheat later, and it works well.

I had two jars of salsa verde, and they were both expired! My pork butt was frozen (forgot to take it out of the fridge). What to do? Frozen 3.75 lb butt into crock pot. Pour lg can green enchilada sauce, small can of diced chiles, all the japs from a can of pickled jalapenos oven top frozen roast. Cover and cook on high 1 hr. Reduce temp setting to low and cook 10 hrs or so. Take roast out, remove all fat, and shred. Pour out liquid and skim off all fat. Place meat back into crock pot with defatted broth. Mush up japs (removing stems) and place into crock pot with meat. Reheat with lg handful of chopped cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips! Thank you for the inspiration!

These were great. We used the leftovers in breakfast burritos and a casserole.
