Mexican Shredded Pork and Rice Tacos

I found an excellent Shredded Pork recipe on allrecipes. I modified slightly it to make tacos..DELICIOUS!!!

12 taco shells

1- 2lb pork roast( I use the kirkland sirloin tip roasts.)
1-4 oz can diced green chilies
2 chipotle peppers in adobo(chopped and I use about 2 TB of the adobo)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
2 cloves garlic, minced

Slice your roast into 2 inch slices, place in slow cooker and top with remaining ingredients.
Cook low 6-7 or high 4-5 until the meat reaches 165.

1 cup uncooked long grain rice
3 TB fresh lime juice
2 cups water
3 TB fresh chopped Cilantro

Bring water to a boil, add lime juice, rice and cilantro. Cover and simmer 20 minutes until tender.

Remove meat and shred well.

Return meat to juices in the slow cooker, add cooked rice and stir. Simmer for 15 minutes on high.

Stuff taco shells and top as desired.
I used chopped spinach, pico de gallo, sour cream and Monterrey Jack cheese.
