    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 9 hours or until very tender. Remove pork from slow cooker; when cool enough to handle, shred meat with fork. Stir shredded pork back into mixture in slow cooker. Serve with rice; top with remaining ingredients.

  • To use the pork in enchiladas, quesadillas and more, just drain the liquid using a colander or slotted spoon.
  • Not a fan of black beans? Chickpeas or kidney beans would make nice substitutes.
