Take it Easy

Now that my oldest has officially started T ball, it’s time to have a plan of action when planning my weekly menu.  One night of crockpot deliciousness a week is a must. We’re BIG fans of any kind of meat you can put in a taco shell, so when I found this recipe, it immediately made it on the menu.  We don’t have pork near enough in this little house and after eating this little number, I can’t for the life of me figure out why.  AMAZING.  Seriously.  So here’s another crockpot recipe to add to your arsenal of yummies.  Do yourself a favor and take it easy in the kitchen this week.  You’ll be so glad you did!

 

CROCK POT BAJA PORK TACOS

recipe from Chef in Training

1 {3lb} Boneless pork tenderloin

5 {4oz} cans chopped green chiles

2 tbsp. taco seasoning, reduced sodium

1 tbsp. ground cumin

Corn tortillas

Optional toppings

lettuce

cheese

pico de gallo

avocado

Let’s get this party started.  Cut the tenderloin in half and place in crock pot.  In a small bowl, mix together chiles, taco seasoning, and cumin.  Pour mixture over pork, cover, and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until pork is tender and easily falls apart.  When it’s about ready, shred pork with a couple of forks.  I didn’t remove the pork from the crock pot to shred it.  I was able to shred it while it was still cooking.  Ohmiword…it was SO tender!!!!!

Place a generous heaping of pork down the middle of your corn tortilla.  First I added my toppings…cheese, avocado, and pico de gallo.  Then the pork went on top.  Mr. Spouse likes to serve tacos like this because he says the meat heats the cheese and helps it melt. So yes, I guess you could say there’s a method to the madness.  Either way, this recipe is all kinds of amazing.  I love me some tacos and know I think this recipe has moved to the top of my list of favorite taco recipes.  SO good!

The best part about this recipe was that it was ready when I walked in the door.  {Minus the two minutes I spent shredding it all up.}  So good, y’all!  And they were even better the next day!!!!
