My husband loves these! I add a little lime juice at the end.

I love crocking, but I’m a bit confused about reserving cooking liquid when you don’t put any in to begin with. I cannot imagine the pork making enough liquid of it’s own. Any thoughts?

Kim, It doesn’t matter what type of meat you’re cooking in your crock, there’s liquid even when you don’t add any. It’s from the condensation that developes on the lid and drops down.

Would it be ok to just use regular chili powder or does it have to be chipotle chili powder? I only have regular on hand. 🙂

I just made this today for dinner. The smell alone was mouth watering. I loved the rub!!! We are going to serve this with corn tortilla, re-fried beans, lettuce, sour cream, guacamole and cheese. Just like they serve it at our favorite Mexican restaurant!

We made this today and it was very tasty! We tend to have issues with our pork being dry when slow cooked though. Any suggestions for us?
