Slow Cooker Pork Tacos (A Seat at the Table)

A while back I made this delicious slow cooker pork.  I made a large portion and then froze some of it.  So when I needed an easy meal for a busy week night, I pulled out the pork to defrost and used it to make pork tacos.

I recommend getting the small, corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas.  You can then fill them with whatever you like, but I recommend mixing up some black beans, and a little pico de gallo.  I’ve been buying the little pre-portioned sizes of guacamole so I can add a little without making a whole batch.

Serves 6

  • 2 (15oz) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 cup water or beer or chicken stock
  • salt to taste
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 cups or so shredded slow cooker mojo pork
  • Guacamole
  • Salsa
  • Pickled jalapeños
  • Shredded cheese
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Corn tortillas

In a small pot, combine black beans, chili powder, cumin, coriander, and liquid.  Bring beans to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for about 15 minutes.  Season with salt to taste and mash black beans against the side of the pot until at your desired consistency.

In a small dish, combine chopped tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro, and a pinch of salt.  Mix and adjust seasoning as needed.

To assemble, heat the corn tortillas by placing in a dry skillet for 10-15 seconds on each side.  Add beans, pork, tomatoes, and other desired toppings.
