Okay, all I am going to say is that these are the easiest most delicious crock pot taco’s on the market! They are awesome. I have shared this recipe with all my friends and its one that gets used time and time again! I found it on the net a few years back and I thank the dear person who posted it… If only I could remember where that was!
This can feed a crowd for pennies, makes great left overs and is an all around winner on flavor, budget and time! I am in a whirl wind of things going on so throwing this meal together by plopping the ingredients in in the morn., and let the crock pot do its thing, made for a special, yet extremely easy dinner that night!
I can’t believe I am moving off this rock-permanently-ahhhh- in a couple of days!! I’m off to Canada for a couple weeks for a family visit before we are off to our new life in France! Life is full right now of a million little things that come along with any kind of move, and pregnancy and all that life has to offer! I wonder if life will ever slow down. Does it? I have a feeling it wont for the next 20 years… I am guessing the more kids you have the more whirlwind your life becomes? It’s all so very exciting the thought of growing a family, finding a future, but honestly right now… my dream is to climb into a big comfy white bed with fluffy pillows, in an air conditioned room and sleep for 3 days! Give me three days and I will be back , and at it and full of life-promise. Actually just give me a bed! We have been sleeping on a blow up for three months now. Don’t ask why! Any real bed sounds like a cloud. But enough rambling from me, what I came here to say is, Sweet Pork Tacos with Slaw and Avocado….do it- you wont be disappointed.
- Roasted Sweet Pork
- about 6 pounds Pork butt/shoulder ( you can use less if you want)
- 1 19 oz. can Red Enchilada Sauce
- 1 can Coke
- 2 tsp. Chili Powder
- 1 tsp. Cumin
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 Clove Garlic or 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
- 1½ c. Brown Sugar
- ½ onion, chopped
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- toppings, diced avocado, and thinly sliced cabbage and a squeeze of lemon or lime!
- Throw all ingredients in your crockpot and let it do its magic! (I set mine for 10 hours). Use two forks to shred the pork by pulling it apart.
- Then she placed the meat on top of a tortilla (we used grilled corn tortillas…….but I’m sure flour would be good too) and then the cabbage and avocado and whatever else you want on top of that.
- Fold and devour. Use the left overs for burritos, nachos, sandwiches, on top of rice! You can use the left overs in so many ways.
- It freezers well too.
