2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

18 corn tortillas
1/2 cup fresh cilantro springs
3/4 cup sour cream
2 limes, cut into wedges
-In a 4-to-6 quart slow cooker, combine the salsa, chili powder, oregano, cocoa, salt, and pork

-20 minutes before serving, heat oven to 350. Stack the tortillas, wrap then in foil, and bake into warm

Overall, I thought this was an awesome crock pot meal. We ate it with low-fat 6" whole wheat tortillas, which only have 45 calories a pop. I would definitely recommend this dish for the busy professional and for guys who own a crock pot.
