Crockpot Pulled-Pork Tacos

Wow, I thought these were so delicious.  Definitely a nice twist on my typical tacos. The sauce has a bit of cocoa in them so they have a slight mole flavor.

Pulled Pork Tacos

The original recipe called for pork shoulder, but I used thick boneless pork chops, because that is what I had in the freezer.  Served on corn tortilla with sour cream (soy version for me & Maria), avocado & lettuce.  The kids also had cheese (substitute).  I then went back for seconds, but had it just with lettuce, black beans, corn and avocado with some tortilla chips.  Both was good. I really loved the flavor…

Crockpot Pulled-Pork Tacos

24 oz jar of salsa
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp dried oregano
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 boneless pork
corn tortillas
toppings: sour cream, avocado, cheese, lettuce, corn, black beans, chips, whatever you desire

  1. In crockpot, combine the salsa, chili powder, oregano, cocoa and salt.  Add the pork, turn to coat.
  2. Cook, covered, until the meat is tender and pulls apart easily.  On high 4-5 hours or low for 8-10 hours.
  3. About 15 minutes before serving, remove the pork and shred. Return to cooking liquid and stir.

  1. Thanks, Jane. We’ve been buying some excellent homemade tortillas at the farmer’s market—& they are the same price as the packaged kind at the store! We made fish tacos from fish we also got at the farmer’s market. So good! I look forward to trying these out.
