  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons fajita seasoning mix, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped seeded fresh poblano peppers
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Optional: Hot cooked rice and chipotle hot sauce, such as Choulula


  1. Sprinkle roast with 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; brown meat. Transfer meat to a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine the next 8 ingredients and remaining 1 tablespoon fajita seasoning; pour over meat. Cook, covered, on low until a thermometer inserted in pork reads at least 145°, about 3 hours.
  2. Remove roast; cool slightly. Cut pork into 1-in. cubes; return to slow cooker. Heat through. If desired, serve pork with rice and hot sauce.
  3. Freeze option: Place cubed pork in freezer containers; top with cooking juices. Cool and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally.
