Chipotle Pulled Pork

This is what I’m making for dinner tonight. It smells sooo good right now! It’s one of our favorite recipes and one that I’ve made several times since we got married. I love that it cooks in the crockpot and that it’s a great meal for all seasons. The original recipe can be found here: Spicy Shredded Pork. 

Ingredients

1 Medium Sized Pork Roast

1 can (11 Ounce) Chipotle Peppers In Adobo Sauce

2 cans Dr. Pepper, Coke, or other dark soda (Dr. Pepper is my favorite)

1/4 cup Brown Sugar (or more to taste)

1 Onion

Directions

1. Place pork roast (mine are usually frozen), can of chipotle peppers, soda, and brown sugar in crock pot.

2. Cook on low 6-8 hours or until you get home and are almost ready to eat.

3. About 1 hour to 30 min prior to dinner take out the larger pieces of pepper that you can still see in the crockpot (unless you want it to be super spicy) then pull or shred the pork using two forks. Add the chopped onion then allow to simmer for a little bit longer before serving. Make sure the sauce covers all of the pulled pork. If you don’t have enough sauce you can always add another can of soda.

4. Serve like you would pork or chicken tacos – with lettuce, tomato, sour cream, etc. on a warm tortilla.
