For best results marinade for a couple of hours before putting it in the crock pot. I suggest serving this with peach salsa or another type of fruit salsa. My husband likes to substitute beer for the water.
- 1 lb pork loin
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cumin
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄2 cup onion, minced
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons chipotle chiles in adobo, puree
- 1⁄4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 dash salt
- 2 tablespoons water
- Put all the ingredients, in no specific order, in the crock pot and cook on low for about 3 hours or until done.
- Once the pork is cooked all the way through shred and serve on warm tortillas with your choice of toppings.
I used pork shoulder to make this. I didn't marinate it but it turned out great anyway. Because of my choice of meat I let it cook on low for 8 hours. The meat was very tender and very spicy. I didn't need any salsa with it. Made for some super tasting tacos. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7.
This was a home run at our house. They even went out of their way to comment on how good it was. We have pork loin quite a bit because it goes on sale regularly and this was a great change of taste. Thanks!
This was REALLY good. My girl friend is not big on eating meat (maybe once a week) and she pigged out. she ate 5 tacos! :)<br/><br/>This is a well blended, and very authentic recipe. wonderful flavor.<br/><br/>I used Embasa chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Comes in a 12 oz. can. Just puree, use what you need, and refrigerate or freeze for later use. I hate buying fresh cilantro. I usually end up throwing quite a bit away after it spoils in the fridge. I use Litehouse freeze-dried (just add water) cilantro. I just added a 1/4 cup, and a tbls. or so more water to the recipe. I also used two tenderloin chops (aprox. 1.2lbs), but I would not hesitate to use a whole loin roast, and adjust ingredient qtys. for a large crowd. <br/><br/>We ate ours with sour cream and a four cheese Mexican blend.<br/><br/>Easy to prepare, great taste. You will not be disappointed.
