Spicy Chipolte Pulled Pork Sandwiches

This was probably the most tastiest roast I have yet to cook.  It had a kick to it (spicy) but it was so delicious with a little mayo on a Pepperidge farm Onion bun! Yummy!
ALSO: Found this recipe off of The Pioneer Woman's website.. but like any recipe I try.. I do have to tweak it a tad... just my style I guess!

This was after it came out the oven and I had shredded it! 


1 Boston Butt Roast 5-7 Pounds
1 Large Onion
Salt and Pepper to Season
2 Cans of Dr. pepper
2 6 oz. Cans of Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce
2 TBLS of Brown Sugar

Pre heat Oven to 300 degrees.
Peel the onion, and cut into wedges.
Lay them into the bottom of a dutch oven.
Pour in the cans of Chipotle peppers, over the roast.
Pour in the 2 dr. pepper's
Add and stir in the Brown sugar.
Place lid on pot, and set in the oven.  Cook at minimum for 6 hours.  Turning a couple times during the 6 hours. (You want it falling apart)
Remove roast from pot, and place onto a cutting board.
Use 2 forks to completely shred.
Once shredded, place back into the juice in the dutch oven.

Serve with Buns.  (we used onion buns from Pepperidge farms)

Cast Iron Queso

I originally found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman's website.  While I did keep the recipe pretty much on the same track as hers, there was a couple things that I did adjust.  Can I just say it was TO.DIE.FOR! Seriously!!

Sorry I didn't get a better picture.. but this is what it will look like before going into the Oven.
SN: I did a double batch, So I'm going to give my ingredients as I made it.

1 Pound of Breakfast Sausage
2 Whole Onions (medium)
4 Small Bell Peppers (any color will do, I used green and yellow for color)
2 Pounds of Cheese (I used 1/2 lb. of Monterey Jack, 1 lb. Pepper jack, and 1/2 of cheddar cheese)
Sprinkle of Chili powder
4-5 Whole Roma Tomatoes
1 C. Cilantro
Tortilla Chips for Serving

1. Preheat Oven to 400 Degrees
2.  Cook sausage until crumbled until brown, drain and remove from skillet.
3.  Add onions and bell peppers in same skillet and cook on medium heat until brown and tender.  Remove from heat and set aside.
4.  To build the Skillet; place 1/3 of cheese in bottom of skillet, add half the sausage, half of the onion bell pepper mixture, sprinkle cilantro and tomatoes.  Repeat, Cheese, rest of sausage, rest of onion bell pepper, sprinkle cilantro and tomatoes.  Put remaining about of cheese, then sprinkle last big of cilantro and tomatoes.
5.  Place into 400 degree oven and let bake for about 10 minutes or so, give or take.  Don't take your eye off of it.  You want the cheese completely melted, hot, and slightly bubbly.
6.  Serve Queso right out the oven!  Enjoy!
