Slow Cooked Fiesta Pork

This week I found an awesome deal at our local store on pork tenderloin tips (buy 1 get 3 free). I thought of many different dishes I had made in the past such as pulled pork and marinated pork fried rice (will be blogging about that later) but I was feeling more of a tex-mex vibe. Honestly I did not expect this dish to turn as good as it did and the best part I made it in the slow cooker!!!. I served mine on a bed of rice however it is perfect to go in a tortilla or taco shell!! I hope you enjoy!

Fiesta Pork

2 1/2 lbs. pork tenderloin (if you use another cut make sure all fat is trimmed and bone is removed)
3 cups salsa (your choice if you want mild, medium or hot)
1 pkt. taco seasoning
1 Tbs. cumin
1 Tbs. garlic powder
2 tsp. salt
1 cup frozen corn
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups hot cooked rice
sliced avocado
sour cream
cheddar cheese

In a bowl combine salt, cumin and garlic powder and rub pork making sure to use all it.
Place pork in the slow cooker.
In another bowl mix together taco seasoning and salsa.
Pour over the pork.
Cook on low for 8 hours.
Place pork on a plate and with 2 forks shred the meat.
Pour the meat back into the slow cooker. 
Mix in the black beans and corn.
Cover and cook on low for another 30 minutes.
Serve on a bed of rice.
Top with avocado, cheese and sour cream if desired.
