Sweet Pork Anyone?

So whenever I go visit my sister down in Bountiful I'm like one of Pavlov's Dogs! I seem to start salivating when we pull into town because she lives ONE block away from Costa Vida! I ALWAYS seem to make it down the street to this wonderful place! Well, another one of my sisters told me the "Secret" recipe for their sweet pork and I'm kinda freaking out about it! I just made sweet pork quesadillas today and Jocie and Lizzie both said..."MMmmMMmmMMm Kanks Mom!!!" (thanks mom) Oh gosh it was just as good and SOOO Easy! Plus I fed my family for like $6.50 as opposed to paying $8.00 for one quesadilla!

So all of you who are wanting to pinch pennies with out sacrificing taste and quailty....

can I get a WOOP WOOP!!!....

Here's the Recipe: 2lbs pork tenderloin (or pork roast)
1/2 cup Pace Picante Sauce (I used mild)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
Put it all in a slow cooker, It took about 2 hours on high...but I kicked it down to low just til it was time to eat:) Basically just cook it til the meat is done, then pull apart the pork to shred it :)This recipe may be doubled, just allow more time to cook. Enjoy!

So I'm going to sound like a TOTAL creeper right now, especially considering I haven't seen or talked to you in years. But I saw your status on facebook about Costa Vida and I about freaked out because I LOVE THAT PLACE!! Whenever I'm in Utah I HAVE to eat there! So I went to your blog...and stole the recipe and I'm making it tonight. Anyways...hope I didn't freak you out by the randomness! Hope all is well with you and your family!
P.S. your girls are adorable :)
