    Yummy… that looks so good. I love the idea of adding some salsa. Not a lot but that touch would really make the difference. Although as I was scrolling down my computer had a mind of its own and as I tried to stop it to go back to the ingredients I thought the dash of pepper said Dr Pepper lol. I may have to stop by the store on the way home; I think this would be great on top of the pulled pork I had planned.
