This recipe is made for 1-2 people, so you will need to adjust the amount of ingredients needed depending on how many people you will be serving.
To prepare this dish, start by seasoning both sides of the roast with cumin, salt, pepper and chili powder. If you really love these spices, you can add more than what is suggested in this recipe. Once it is seasoned, place the roast in the crockpot, along with the black beans (liquid drained), green bell pepper strips and the tomatoes. Place the cover on the crockpot and set the setting to low. Cook for 8 hours. Once cooked, the pork will be so tender that you can easily shred it with a fork.

If you do not want to serve this dish as suggested, you can omit the tortillas and substitute rice. You can serve it alongside a salad or some vegetables.
If you decide to omit the burritos portion of this recipe, add carrots, celery and potatoes in the crockpot instead.
