Mexican Pulled Pork

I had a ton of pork roasts in the freezer and wanted a new, creative way to use them, so I started thinking of what would go good with it. I came up with this gem. It's a definite keeper especially when I can just put it in the crock pot and it does the work for me. You can use the meat any way you want, but we opted to put it in tortillas as pulled pork tacos. Absolutely delicious and used ingredients I had on-hand. Try it and you won't be disappointed!

4-6 pound pork roast
2 cups salsa
1 (6oz) can tomato paste
1 (4oz) can diced green chilies
1/2 cup water
1/2 onion sliced long and thin
1 packet taco seasoning

Mix salsa, tomato paste, chilies, water, onion, and taco seasoning. Pour half the mixture in the bottom of crock pot. Place pork roast in crock pot. Pour rest of salsa mixture over top. Cook on high for 4-6 hours. Shred and put in tortillas.
