Slow Cooker Pork Tacos

Ingredients

tacos

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 2 1/2-pound boneless pork butt or shoulder, trimmed of excess fat
  • 12 corn tortillas (4” across)
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro sprigs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges 
  • 2 cups store-bought salsa, plus more for serving

 

Directions

1.     In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the salsa, chili powder, oregano, cocoa, and 1 teaspoon salt. Add the pork and turn to coat.

2.     Cook, covered, until the meat is tender and pulls apart easily, on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours.

3.     Twenty minutes before serving, heat oven to 350° F.

4.     Stack the tortillas, wrap them in foil, and bake until warm, about 15 minutes.

5.     Meanwhile, using 2 forks, shred the pork and stir into the cooking liquid. Serve with the tortillas, cilantro, sour cream, lime, and extra salsa.
