Slow Cooker Pork Tacos

Mmmmm. Tacos.

This dish is perfect for a weeknight meal. *cough cough Taco Tuesday*

While I used pork, I encourage you to try this with chicken breast or beef as well! Crock pots are amazing and just like a fast pass for tolls on the highway, everyone needs one.

I used flour tortillas because I'm not a fan of their cousin, corn tortillas, but if you're gluten free or just prefer corn, go for it!

Ingredients (makes about 12-14 tacos):
3lbs Pork Butt/Shoulder (you can get a bigger size for more leftovers)
Flour or Corn Tortillas
2 Tbl Chili Powder
2 Tbl Cumin
1 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper

Salsa Verde (I used Chi-Chi's)
Cheese (I did one with feta and one with cheddar)
Pickled Jalapeno Slices
Diced White Onion

Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Place pork inside and coat with spices. Cook on low for 8 hours. Shred pork, taste, and adjust spices as needed.

To assemble the tacos, just add 1-2oz of pork in each shell and top with your favorite toppings! Stay tuned to see what I did with the leftover pork!

Enjoy :)

The nutrition facts are better left unsaid. Also, the amount of meat/shell type/toppings varies per person!
