Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare Shredded Seasoned Pork: Trim fat from one 2- to 2 1/2-pound boneless pork sirloin roast. Sprinkle with taco seasoning mix; rub in with your fingers. Place meat in a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Add diced tomatoes, undrained. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

  • Remove meat, reserving cooking liquid. Shred meat using two forks. Toss meat with enough cooking liquid to moisten.

  • To prepare the Chipotle Aioli: In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic, and chipotle pepper; set aside.

  • To prepare the Pork Tacos: Combine lettuce, mango, and jicama; set aside.

  • Serve 2 1/2 cups Shredded Seasoned Pork, Chipotle Aioli, and Mango Lettuce Mixture in warmed corn tortillas. Sprinkle with cilantro.


Tip: If desired, substitute 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper for the canned chipotle pepper.

To Store: Place leftover shredded meat in an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator up to 3 days, or freeze up to 3 months.
