  • Place the pork roast in a large slow cooker. Add the sliced onions, minced garlic, chopped chipotle peppers, salt, ground cumin, and just 1 can Old El Paso Red Enchilada Sauce. Cover the slow cooker and turn on high for 3-6 hours, until the pork roast in fork-tender. Shred the meat in the sauce with two forks. (This step can be done several days ahead.)
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cut the rolls in half horizontally. Place the bottom halves in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Top each roll with a heaping portion of shredded pork. Then place 2 squares of muenster cheese on top of the pork, followed by 2-3 pickled jalapeños. Place the roll tops on the sandwiches.
  • Bake the sandwiches for 5-8 minutes. Then pour the remaining can of Old El Paso Red Enchilada Sauce over the tops of the sandwiches and bake for another 5 minutes. Serve warm!
