Chili-Lime Pork Carnitas

I found a nice pork roast on sale and wanted to give it a lot of flavor.  I remembered seeing a Chili Lime Marinade on the back of my Thrive Life limeade can, and it was the perfect combination of flavors!  I tweaked it a little for my personal taste and turned it into a rub rather than a marinade, and then let the pork simmer away all day in the slow cooker.  Yummy, yummy!
