- 1 can cola NOT diet
- 1/2 cup brown sugar

Put the pork in a reclosable bag to marinate, pour in half of the can of cola and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Marinate for 2 hours.
Drain marinade and put pork, 1/2 can of cola, water, Hatch chile, enchilada sauce and garlic salt in crock pot on low for about 7-8 hours.
Remove pork from crockpot and let cool until you can shred the meat.
