My hubby and daughter loved it, I thought it was okay. Just a matter of taste buds. I served it with FF refried beans topped with FF mozerella cheese and FF sour cream.

My family loves this, and we have had it several times and even passed it on to friends who also loved it. We serve ours with yellow rice mixed with black beans and corn with cumin and lime juice.

My whole family loved it. I used rotel tomatoes with green chilis and salt. We used it on taco salads. Delicious!! The problem is the recipes says 20 servings and for Ideal protein it's really 6 servings.

Can't go wrong with pork should slow cooked.. Very good. I made my own Mexican Seasoning and this would have tasted better had I did better there.

This is so delicious! But I'm just not sure about the serving size. I found another website that was a similar crockpot carnitas recipe that said it was 176 calories per half cup.

Pretty tasty, but it seemed like a lot of work to shred the meat.

I used less tomato to cut some carbs & served on a bed of lettuce with shredded cheese & sourcream, the kids had theirs on tortilla. Great, tasty dish!

Souvlaki can be made with any meat of your choice. Try it with chicken, shrimp or lamb.
Stuffing something with cheese instantly makes it better. If you wrap it in bacon, UNSTOPPABLE.
