Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos

Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos

With Tangy Peach and Mango Salsa

If you haven’t yet caught on I LOVE Tacos. They are just a great versatile meal that always hits the spots and is so easy to make. But want to know what I love even more than tacos? Easy dinners that can be repurposed throughout the week.

No, I’m not talking about reheating leftovers night after night. I am talking about incredibly tasty and tender pulled pork used for delicious tacos one night and two incredible other meals throughout the week!

This post is a part of a series of post where I will use the main ingredient, yummy slow cooker pulled pork, in three different meals. The first is this amazing taco night dinner with smokey Mexican pulled pork and slightly sweet peach and mango salsa.

In the next few days, I will share two other posts where I will use the leftover pork to create Pulled Pork Topped Homemade Mac and Cheese and then Apple and Pork Stuffed Acorn Squash.

Now to focus on tonight’s recipe: Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos and Sweet Peach and Mango Salsas. This pairing is the BEST. Think slightly spicy, slightly smoking, and slightly sweet. The warm and tender pulled pork gets a fresh bite from the salsa and makes the perfect taco. It’s so easy to make too: just cook the roast while you are at work, assemble the tacos, and you have dinner.

Ingredients For Pulled Pork Tacos

  • 5-6lb Pork Roast: If you are looking for suggestions I would go with either a Pork Loin Roast or Pork Butt (actually the shoulder of the pig). This may seem like a huge roast (and it is) but remember I am using it in three different recipes this week!
  • Chiptole Peppers in Adobo Sauce
  • Can or Bottle of Beer
  • Lime Juice
  • Spices: Chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper
  • Cheese for topping
  • Tortillas
  • Fresh Peach and Mango Salsa (recipe below)

How To Make Pulled Pork Tacos

Start by slicing the pork roast into 5-6 large pieces. This will ensure that the pork cooks completely and evenly in the slow cooker. Next mix together the spices in a small bowl, then rub the mixture over all sides of the pork.

Let the roast cook for either 6 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Once the meat is cooked you can shred the meat and prepare the salsa (chop all the ingredients and combine).

Fill your favorite kind of tortilla with meat, salsa, cheese, and whatever else you love in tacos. Easy delicious dinner!
