What You’ll Love About This Recipe
There are several things I really like about today’s recipe. It has great flavor thanks to chipotle peppers and it is so versatile. The pulled pork can be used so many different ways. I like to just serve it over rice for one. It can also be used in burritos, tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, etc.
I served this slow cooker shredded chipotle pork this week with Cafe Rio Black Beans and Cilantro Lime Rice. We used it to make burritos and it was a huge success. This recipe makes a good amount. You can easily feed 8 people, or use the leftover pork for tacos or salads.
How To Make Chipotle Pork
The recipe called for Chipotle Sauce which I couldn’t find so I just blended up some canned chipotle peppers and used that. It worked great.
I placed the pork into the slow cooker along with green chilies, onions, garlic, lime juice, chipotle sauce and some water.
Cook it on low for 6-7 hours and then remove the pork and shred it. Put it back in the pot along with some cumin and fresh cilantro and allow it to simmer in the slow cooker for another 30 minutes to allow the meat to absorb some of the juices.
Then serve it up however you like!
