If you need a lazy day meal, this one is for you! It’s one of my favorites for the way it tastes AND how crazy simple it is to throw together.
Now, I honestly don’t even know if I’d call this a recipe. I mean really it’s more about assembling all your favorite things, heating it up and then putting it on the table.
I actually had to start making two pans to keep up with my guys and their massive appetites. The day they finished off an entire pan and I didn’t get one single nacho was the last time that I only made one pan!
Seriously–they ate every bite of dinner and left me NONE whatsoever!
I was busy putting up all the extra food, grabbing napkins, drinks and such so I didn’t make it over to the table until about 5 minutes after I had put the pan on the table. The food had just come out of the oven, I figured it would be too hot to eat…so I was in no hurry. When I got to the table they all looked at the empty pan and then at me. As they were stuffing their faces my oldest kiddo said…”OH, we thought you already ate!”
The great part of this recipe is that the slow cooker does all the hard work. I just toss the pork in the pot early in the morning and let it cook on slow all day long. Even better, I can usually get two meals out of that one pork roast. The first dinner is nachos and then the 2nd night, I just throw the cooked pork in a pan to crisp it up a bit and serve as Carnitas Tacos. Gotta love dishes where you cook once and eat twice!
With the sales in the new ad, you can put this together at a great price. As you will be able to get two meals from one roast, I am guesstimating that each meal is about $10 or less. I’ll take that!

Grab your ingredients and give this recipe a try and let me know what you think. Also, if you don’t feel like firing up the grill on the 4th, this meat is fantastic to put out and let folks make their own nachos. Or, grab some buns and BBQ sauce and let them make sandwiches. A pork butt is always a good thing when serving lots of folks!
