Southwest Pulled Pork Soup


It’s amazing.  We’ve been eating this pulled pork for days but our tastebuds would never know.  We’ve had it in these awesome sandwiches I told you about the other day.   We’ve had it hash style with sweet potatoes.  We’ve had it in risotto.  We’ve had it in quesadillas with this simple, delicious guacamole…



But this soup?  It may have topped them all.  It’s so quick to throw together and tastes crazy fresh.  Light but still comforting and tasty tasty tasty.  I think I spent a total of 15 dollars on the pork for the Slow Cooker Pulled Pork recipe and it got us through days of meals.  Winner winner SEVERAL porky dinners.  Please PLEASE comment and share with me your favorite ways to enjoy pulled pork…this may be a new infatuation for me!

  1. I love your pork carnitas and since you’ve updated your website I can’t find the recipe anymore!! Also, where did the search engine go that you could type in names of specific recipes go?? Thanks!!!

    1. Hi Sarah..thanks for the note! The site should still work the same for you…are you viewing it on a mobile device or a computer? If you’re on mobile you should be able to scroll all the way to the bottom and there will be a “search” bar to type in what you are looking for..and also a “browse recipes” drop down that will allow you to search by category. In this case you’d choose “pork” and you should find it. If you are on a computer both options will be on the right side of your screen at the top of the page. Let me know if this works..if not, I’m in trouble;)
