Ingredients

  • 1 4-pound boneless pork shoulder roast
  • salt to taste
  • 1 cup prepared salsa (use your favorite!)
  • 1 canned chipotle chili plus 2 tablespoons of the adobo sauce from the can
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 small onion, peeled and cut in half
  • 10-12 6-inch tortillas
  • favorite toppings such as lettuce, cheese, hot sauce, green onions, cilantro, or lime wedges optional, for serving

Instructions

  • Trim excess fat from the pork and cut into 4 pieces. Season on all sides generously with salt.
  • Put the salsa, chipotle chili, adobo sauce, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic and 1 teaspoon salt in a slow cooker and stir to combine.
  • Add the onion and pork to the slow cooker and turn to coat with the sauce. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
  • Transfer the pork to a bowl and shred with two forks. Pour the sauce through a strainer and skim the fat with a spoon or a fat separator if you like. Add enough sauce to the pork to moisten it.
  • To serve, warm the tortillas and fill with pulled pork and desired garnishes.
