Southwestern Pork Burritos

I love my slow cooker! It is such a time saver, especially during the week when schedules get chaotic. Knowing that there is a meal waiting for us when we get home is a relief. No rushing to figure out what to make with the food that is in the cupboard! Along with saving time, using a slow cooker in this recipe allows for nice tender, juicy meat in your burrito. Add whatever condiments sound good to you, and you have a delicious pork burrito with little preparation!
