Crock pot fajita pork

I was watching an episode of Sandra Lee’s Semi-Homemade (recorded on Tuesday) it was an episode about slow-cooker

Mexajita Chicken.

Here’s a link to the episode and the recipe.

I did not have chicken defrosted or fajita seasoning…… so  I improvised.

Here is my improvised recipe.

6 Pork Loin Fillet

1 large can of pinto beans or 2 small cans.

1 can of mild ro-tel tomatoes *there is a coupon on the ro-tel website.*

1 can of diced tomatoes with onion and green pepper.

1 tsp. each of minced garlic, minced onion, ground cumin, oregano, cilantro, chili powder


1/2 tsp. of pepper.

1 package of Taco seasoning.

2 TBSP of olive oil

What I did….

I browned the pork (in the olive oil) on the stove before I placed it in the slow cooker.

Open the pinto beans and dump the can (liquid and all) into the slow cooker. I sprinkled the beans with some taco seasoning.

Place the browned pork on top of the beans. sprinkle with taco seasoning.

Cover the pork with the tomatoes (liquid and all)  and add the listed seasonings and the rest of the  taco seasoning package.

Cook on low for about 4 hours.

In the crock pot

ready to eat!

The pork was so tender! We could cut it with just a fork. It had an amazing flavor and although it was a tad spicy for my tastes, it was hearty and filling. I made Mexican rice as a side dish.

I believe that next time I will use plain diced tomatoes and not ro-tel, my daughter does not like anything spicy.
