Mexican Pulled Pork slow cooked Tacos and More By freda



I love to make this as I can make several Meal Options from this one recipe.
This is a Slow Cooked Pulled pork with a Mexican flavor. It can be used in Tacos, Enchiladas, and Sandwiches. Its pretty versatile. This Aroma thru the Kitchen is wonderful.

It freezed well for Use any time.
These are on the Very Mild Side, If I want Hotter I just Increase the Ceyenne and Chili powder. or add Jalapenos.
You can make this Hotter or mild. The choice is all yours.

Choose your own Toppings as You desire;
Sour cream, Guacamole, Lettuce, mexican Cheese, Olives, Green Onions, tomatoes, Salsa's green or red, its your choice.
I also Serve these in WARM soft Shell Tortillas, Either Flour or Corn.
I usually add a Medley of A fresh Fruit salad with them such as Fresh Sliced strawberries, Fresh Pineapple and Kiwi all mixed together. Its looks so pretty on a plate, with this salad. You can also add refried Beans if You like.

I hope You will enjoy this as much as we do.
Slow cooker is the Great way to Cook and have No Heat in the house, on Hot days.
