  • 2 lbs. pork tenderloin
  • 2 cans (12 oz.) cola

  • 1 bottle (15 oz.) all-natural enchilada sauce

  • 10 hamburger buns
  • 10 slices American cheese


  • Combine pork, 1 can soda, and coconut sugar in a large covered container. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Remove pork from the marinade and place in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Discard the marinade.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together remaining can of soda, garlic powder, salt, water, green chilies, enchilada sauce, and honey.
  • Pour sauce over the pork in the slow cooker and bake for 8 hours on low.
