Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I used one package of pulled pork- thawed slightly. To the pork I added Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce and warmed over a low heat until heated through.  I spooned the warm pork on 2 Hawaiian rolls and.... viola!  A delicious pulled pork sandwich!

One bag (1  1/2 cups)  makes 4 sandwiches.

meal no.2

So yesterday I pulled two bags of my shredded chicken out of the freezer and made chicken tortilla soup in the crockpot.

3 cups shredded chicken
1/2tsp cumin
1 box chicken stock
1 can rotel
1 can whole tomatoes
1 can corn (drained)
Add to crock pot and set on high for 4 hours.  The chicken went in frozen and warmed up nicely. 

fresh avocado
shredded mixed cheese
4 crushed tostados (or you can use chips- I just didn't have any chips)

serves 4

You can add whatever you have on hand to your soup.  Beans, sour cream, taco seasoning.... I just used what I had on hand.  It turned out great!

I'm loving this new system!  We had left overs from Saturday for yesterday's lunch.... salsa verde shredded chicken sandwiches.  We used a Hawaiian roll instead of a whole wheat roll and it held up a lot better. 

Tomorrow I'm going to pull the pork out and see what I can come up with.  I'm thinking pulled pork tacos with a honey glaze.  yum!
