Slow Cooker Pork & Pinto Stew

This Pork & Pinto Stew can be eaten as a stew, topped with cheese, lettuce tomatoes and tortilla chips or you can eat it like I do with tortillas. Either way, it's delicious. There's also a giveaway for Gooseberry Patch's 101 Super Easy Slow Cooker Recipes so stick around!
This is Mexican comfort food right here! Cinco de Mayo is coming up and this stew would be a perfect part of your Mexican fiesta. Along with some yummy mexican desserts, of course. It comes from Gooseberry Patch's 101 Super Easy Slow Cooker Recipes and I absolutely love this cookbook. 

Every recipe has a photo to go along with it, which I love. I have to see what it looks like because we eat with our eyes first, right? It's broken into cooking times: 1-6 hours, 6-8 hours, 8-10 hours and then there's Make-Ahead Meals. I had a hard time choosing what to make because every recipe sounds great. There's even desserts! I have a copy to giveaway after the recipe. Just use the Rafflecopter form below to enter.

16 oz package dried pinto beans
3 lbs boneless pork loin roast
