Tequila Lime Pork Stew

Well, here is ANOTHER way to redo leftover Crockpot Pork Butt :)

This is actually one of my sister-in-law's recipes; she happens to be a fabulous cook! I took this and redid it with what I have on hand. As I said in my last post, I do 3X the amount of pork that I need. Then I can create another meal with the pork. Check out the base recipe here -

2 corn on the cobs, only kernels removed with knife
