  • 1 pounds - boneless pork shoulder
  • 1 cups - bottled thick and chunky salsa
  • 1 tablespoons - vegetable oil
  • 1 - large white onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 pounds - potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 2 cloves - garlic, minced
  • 6 - eggs
  • 1 cups - cheddar cheese, shredded
  • - fresh cilantro
  • - sliced fresh jalapeno peppers, optional
  • Directions:

    Trim fat from pork. Cut meat into 1-inch pieces. Place meat in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Top with salsa. Seal bag; turn to coat. Marinate in refrigerator overnight or for 6-8 hours.
    Lightly grease an oval 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker with oil. Place onion in cooker. Add pork and marinade mixture, green chile peppers, and garlic. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
    Using the bottom of a ladle or serving spoon, make 6 indentations in the top of the mixture. Crack an egg into each indentation. If using low-heat setting, turn cooker to high-heat setting. Cover; cook 15 minutes more or until egg whites are set and yolks are thickened. Top with cheese, cilantro, and, if desired, jalapeno slices.
