    TexasKelly's Note:

    This is a Rick Bayless recipe, from his book Mexican Everyday. I am posting as it is in his cookbook. Note, when I made this, I used the full 4 chilies in adobo sauce and although my husband and I REALLY seriously like heat in our food, this was almost too hot. So if you are sensitive, you may want to cut back on those. We really enjoyed this recipe, I hope someone will try it and hopefully enjoy it as well. This makes enough for 12 people to have 2 each.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 12


    soft ta ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Spread potatoes over bottom of a slow cooker and top with pork. In a large bowl, mix the undrained tomatoes with the chipotles, chipotle canning sauce, worcestershire, oregano, garlic, optional onion and 1 1/2 tsp salt. Pour the mixture evenly over the meat and potatoes. Cover and slow cook on high for 6 hours.
    2. 2
      When you are ready to eat, fry the optional chorizo in a medium skillet until thoroughly done, about 4 minutes. Uncover the pork tinga and spoon off any fat that has accumulated on top. Sprinkle on the chorizo, then stir everything together, breaking the pork into smaller pieces (sized for wrapping in tortilla's).
    3. 3
      If there is a lot of liquid, tip it off and boil it rapidly until reduced and syrupy, then stir it back into the meat mixture.
    4. 4
      Taste & season with additional salt if you think it needs it.
    5. 5
      Serve with warm tortillas, crumbled fresh cheese & avocado.
    6. 6
      Note: If you do not have a slow cooker, it says you can do this in a medium sized heavy pot. Lay pork in the pot, top with potatoes, cover with tomato mixture, set lid in place and braise in a 300 degree oven for 2 to 2 1/2 hours until pork is completely tender.

      Loved this!, I'm afraid this might have ruined our super quick weeknight tacos. We served lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and avocados on a plate on the side. Heated some tortillas and brought a big bowl of delicious taco meat to the table. We used a Yummy Soy Chirizo for less fat. We didn't find this too spicy by any means. I think next time I'll serve it with fresh lime slices and pico de gallo. Thank you so much for posting this inexpensive, quick crockpot meal.

      Very easy recipe that has a nice depth of flavor. I had never had queso fresco before but its briny fresh taste was the perfect pairing for this recipe. Only thing I might add is a little citrus. I didn't have any lime but perhaps squeezing a little juice over the taco would be just the thing. Thanks!

      This is really great but not nearly spicy enough for us. I'd double the amount of Adobo and Chilis in this. Super easy and a really good flavor profile.
