Mexican Stack-Up

Stack It Up!

I grew up enjoying Mexican Stack-Up.  It is an great meal that is tasty and easy.  Plus how fun to design your own stack-up masterpiece!  Thanks mom  for introducing a fun and easy dinner.

Have fun playing!

Mexican Stack-Up

2-3 lb. pork roast

1 t oregano

3 T chili powder

1 medium onion

3 garlic cloves

1/4 t tabasco

3 t salt

1 t thyme

3 c dried pinto beans

1 can Rotel

Place all ingredients in a large crockpot and cover with water.  Bring to a boil.  Turn to low & cook for 6 hours.  Really that’s it!

This is how I serve it: Shred pork (seriously so tender a two year old could do).  Then drain beans.  Set up your garnishes.  Serve with tortilla chips.  Top with grated cheese, tomatoes, onions, avocados, sour cream, hot sauce, chopped lettuce, and your heart’s desires!  Honestly, stack it up!

A trick I learned from my mom- soak the beans the night before.  It makes them tender and easier to cook.  Thanks, Mom!

Leftovers turned Quesadilla

The next day, we designed our own quesadillas.  Heat in skillet, fold in half, proceed to eat!  Looking Forward to leftovers!
