I hope you enjoy dinner Cafe Rio Style as much as I do!
1-2 lb. pork tenderloin (I have used inexpensive pork carnitas also - available at Winco)
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups fresh salsa
Mix sugar and salsa, pour over pork. Cook in crock pot for 8 hrs. on low. When done shred with two forks and return to juice in crock pot and allow liquid to absorb. Serve with tortillas and all the fixins!

4 oz. green chiles
1 sm. onion, diced
1/3 cup fresh cilantro

Mix together and pour into greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake in the oven for 1 hour or until rice is done at 350.
