Pulled Pork Tacos

Pulled pork tacos are so tender and tasty. This recipe is so simple to make because you throw all the stuff in the crock pot and a couple hours later you have moist pork for tasty tacos. This meal goes great with a hard cider. I personally love Hornsbys.

Pulled Pork Tacos
Serves 6 to 8
You will need:
  • 2 cups salsa
  • 2 T chili powder
  • 2 T dried oregano
  • 2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of boneless pork shoulder, trimmed of excess fat

For serving:

  • salsa
  • fresh cilantro
  • green onion
  • lime wedges
  • sour cream
  • cheddar cheese

In a 4 to 6 quart crock pot, combine the salsa, chili powder, oregano, cocoa and salt. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cook, covered, until the meat is tender and shreds with a fork, high for 4 to 5 hours or low for 7 to 8 hours. Warm tortillas before serving. Shred apart the pork and stir into the cooking liquid. Serve with salsa, cilantro, green onion, lime wedges, sour cream and cheddar cheese. Enjoy!
