Are you ready for this? My number one most viewed and most shared recipe on Instagram. Slow-Cooker Chipotle Pulled Pork Tacos. Maybe it really is the amazing flavor of that chipotle flavored pork, or maybe it’s those ridiculously cute sweet potato “taco shells.” Either way, it’s a fan favorite and I’m sharing the recipe today with all of you.
When your on Whole30 and your favorite food is Mexican, you’ll do anything you can to get your hands on a TACO!
To make these cute little tacos I took a white sweet potato bun and filled it with my Chipotle Pulled Pork, green lead lettuce, and fresh avocado. Feel free to add any other toppings you’d like! Hope you love this recipe as much as my Instagram friends do.
Slow-Cooker Chipotle Pulled Pork Tacos
- 1 Tbl chipotle seasoning
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1-1/2 tsp ground mustard
- 3 tsp chili powder
- 1 boneless pork shoulder (3 lb) trimmed of fat
- 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
- 2 canned chipotle chiles, finely chopped
Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. In a small bowl mix chipotle seasoning, salt, garlic powder, mustard and chili powder. Rub seasoning mixture over pork. Place pork in slow cooker.
Cover; cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or high for 5-6 hours.
Remove pork from cooker; place on cutting board. Remove liquid from cooker; skim fat from liquid and reserve liquid. Cool pork slightly. With 2 forks, shred pork. Return to slow cooker. Store tomato sauce and chipotle chiles into shredded pork (I have used canned green chiles too and both work great). If desired, store some of the reserved cooking liquid for desired moistness.
Serve in cooked sweet potato shells.
