1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup salsa, such as Pace
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1. Place meat into slow cooker that has been coated with cooking spray.

2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl,pour over the pork and cover.
Cook on LOW 6 hours.
