Chulupa

I found this on a friend's blog, and have made it a couple times. Our family really likes it, and it's so darn easy! What could be better than that? The original recipe is HERE and here is how we made it:

Chulupa

2 pounds of dry pinto beans (no need to soak, just rinse)
1 cup onion, chopped fine
3 cloves of garlic, minced
8 oz chopped green chilies
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder (made it once without this, and it's good, too!)
4 pounds beef or pork roast (with or without the bone)
1 1/2 teaspoons of oregano
1 1/2 tablespoons of salt

Cover with water and simmer until beans are tender and meat falls of bone. Remove bone, return meat to crockpot. This takes about 6-7 hours in my crockpot.
Serve over tortilla chips or rice. 

Add any toppings that you would to tacos: salsa, sour cream, cheese, olives, guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes etc.

We ate it wrapped in a warmed tortilla with many of the above toppings.

This is my favorite thing to do with pork roast:) I'm going to have to try it with rice next time:)

Sounds yummy. We so rarely buy pork roast. Maybe i need to look for a good deal on it. =)
