Pork Posole Stew/Soup/Taco

I just made this one up on the fly. I was looking in my freezer for some inspiring meat and found a pork picnic roast - kind of like a shoulder or butt piece- and pulled it out to defrost. Then I grabbed the crock pot and placed the pork in and topped with 1/2 a sliced onion, pouring water over to almost cover. I let this cook on high for about an hour. Then I remembered I had some dried posole from Rancho Gordo. I rinsed them and added to the pot along with a small can of diced green chilis and some s&p. I made sure there was enough water to cover them and let this cook for another 5 hours, until the pork was falling apart and the posole was tender. I was originally thinking stew/soup but it was so thick (after I shredded the pork) that I decided a taco would work too. Served with warm tortillas, avocado and a little salsa verde and dinner was served!
