round 2.. pulled pork taquitos


i have mentioned before i am not a big fan of the crockpot.. i have no earthly idea why but i just don't like food cooked in it.. i do though use it because it's convenient and the rest of the family doesn't seem to have this aversion to the silly contraption.  i like bbq pulled pork made in the crockpot, why you ask? no clue another conundrum.. i will go with shell's answer i am weird.. lately with the weather being so warm we have been spending a lot of our weekends floating on the lake.. we leave early and come home late which doesn't give much time in the way to make dinner and it's usually to hot to even think about heating up the kitchen..thus the crockpot admittedly is helpful.. i made bbq pork and had plenty leftover for a second meal.. now when presented with leftovers my first thought always is "will this go good on a pizza?".. and guess what.. bbq pork pizza is pretty dang good check out the recipe you won't be disappointed.. so with that experiment out of the way and a success my second thought usually is "will this go good in a flour tortilla?".. and while i have yet to find anything that doesn't go good in a flour tortilla i still felt compelled to try it..  and you guessed it.. it was good too.. if you used the little fajita tortillas these would make really good appetizers..all in all a left over pork was a success.. i suggest you try them.. you'll agree..
