Make this delicious Mexican recipe using your leftover pork roast! Preparation is quick and easy using one skillet. If you’re eating low carb and also paying attention to your grocery bill, pork is a fantastic option. Often, we buy a large pork loin and roast it in the oven for a meal and use the leftovers for a second meal. Where we live, pork is by far the cheapest meat option. If you are eating a lean cut, pork is a healthy low carb protein as long as you’re not overdoing it. This recipe combines pork with a slew of veggies to really pump up the nutrient power!
I was eating this out of the skillet while cooking. My husband asked me to please write down exactly how I made it, so I think he also liked it. 🙂 You can also use this seasoned pork for tacos if you prefer. Just add taco shells and you’re set!
Here’s how to make this yummy recipe.
four cups of lean cooked pork, shredded
1 T olive oil
1 4.5 can of mild green chilis
1 small onion, finely diced
1/4 cup bell pepper, finely diced
2 t salt
1 t pepper
1 t garlic powder
2 t oregano
