Pulled Pork Tacos= YUMMY :)

I found this recipe in Health magazine and it is AWESOME!!!! Jason asked if I could make these every week for him! I ♥ this easy, healthy recipe :) Oh and I reallllly that it's a crockpot meal!!!

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 4 hrs 15 mins
Makes: 6 servings

2 cups bottled salsa, plus more for serving
2 TBSP chili powder
2 TBSP dried oregano
1 TBSP unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 (2 1/2 lb) boneless pork butt or shoulder, trimmed
18 corn tortillas (give or take) we also tried them w/four tortillas, but really preferred the corn :)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro sprigs
3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 limes, cut into wedges

Combine the first 5 ingredients (through salt) in a 4-6 quart slow cooker. Add the pork and turn to coat.

Cook pork, covered, on high for 4-5 hours on on low for 7-8 hours, or until the meat is tender and pulls apart easily.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees 20 mins before serving. Stack the tortillas, and wrap in foil. Bake for 15 mins. or untul warm.

Shred pork with 2 forks, and str meat into the cooking liquid. Serve shredded pork with warm tortillas, cilanto, sour cream, red onion, lime and extra salsa.

I have failed many, many, many times at trying new recipes and was a bit nervous about this (pork and me... don't always get along) But this turned out to be forever in my "go to dinners"!! Next time I make these, I will double it for sure

So...when you say pork butt you actually mean his BUTT? Buns? rear-end? And the shoulder is actually the part that keeps the poor pigs arms attached. Sounds yummy:)))
