Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until they're tender. Stir the picante sauce, water, red pepper, green onions, cilantro, lemon pepper, cumin, chili powder and lime juice in the skillet.
Place the pork into a 5-quart slow cooker. Pour the picante sauce mixture over the pork.

Remove the pork from the cooker to a cutting board and let it stand for 10 minutes. Using 2 forks, shred the pork.
Spoon 5 cups picante sauce mixture into a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in the chiles and cook over medium-high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook and stir for 15 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
Spoon 1 cup pork down the center of each tortilla. Top each with 2 tablespoons green chile sauce. Fold the sides of the tortillas over the filling and then fold up the ends to enclose the filling. Divide the remaining green chile sauce and the cheese over the burritos.
