How To Make Pulled Pork Tacos

Ingredients needed

  • Pork butt/shoulder
  • Tomato sauce
  • Brown sugar
  • Adobo sauce
  • Dried ancho chili peppers
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Seasonings (listed below)

Helpful tip with the peppers

If you pick up a bag of the dried chilies and the chilies are crumbly, choose another bag. They are no good and have lost the majority of their flavor. Good dried chilies should be easily bendable without breaking.

Making the pulled pork tacos in the crockpot

  1. First, cut the dried chilies and remove the stems and seeds. Then, bring a pot of water to a boil and add in the onion, dried chilies and garlic. Boil for about 15 minutes to allow the chilies to rehydrate and to soften the onions and garlic.
  2. Now, drain the water from the boiled ingredients. Add to a blender with the tomato sauce, adobo sauce and peppers. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the contents into the crockpot. Then, add in brown sugar, oregano and salt. There are no measurements for the salt because that will depend on the size of the pork butt.
  4. Cook the pork butt on high for 6 hours or low for 8 hours. When the pulled pork is finished you can easily shred it.
  5. Allow to cool a bit before making the tacos. Before making the tacos be sure to do your final taste for salt after shredding the pork.
