    I saw this recipe on the news and really wanted to try Picante and Cranberry in a recipe. I changed it a little. I wanted chunky pork over rice so I cut the recipe in half and left out the rolls, lettuce, and coleslaw. LOVED IT!!! Easy to make and since I am only cooking for two, it worked with left overs. This recipe is versatile, I can see myself trying it with chicken or as a spicy topping for fish next.

    This came out great. I threw all the ingredients in my crockpot for 8 - 12 hours, shredded the pork and put them back in for a little while longer. My boyfriend and his roomates LOVED it.
