Vickie's Southwestern Pork Chalupas
For a speedier start, simply use 2 or 3 15-ounce cans of pinto beans.
16-oz. pkg. dried pinto beans
4 c. water
4-oz. can chopped green chiles
2 T. chili powder
2 t. ground cumin
1 t. dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
4-lb. pork shoulder roast

Cover beans with water in a large soup pot; soak overnight. Drain. Combine beans, water, chiles and spices in a slow cooker; mix well. Add roast; cover and cook on low setting for 4 hours. Remove roast and shred, discarding any bones; return pork to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low setting for an additional 2 to 4 hours, adding more water if necessary. At serving time, arrange corn chips on serving plates. Spoon pork mixture over chips; garnish as desired. Serves 8.
