Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos


I found a handy spice blend infographic (scroll down through the article to view it) that I took a screen shot of and copied and pasted the screen shot into Word to print out a full page version to keep with my spices. There might be a faster way to do that, but I'm not nerdy enough to know what it is. I used the Taco Seasoning blend for my pulled pork, but adjusted the amount for what I needed to make a rub.

Makes 10 6" tacos

Ingredients

1kg boneless pork blade roast
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
Juice of 1 lime
1 cup water
Canola spray, for greasing
340g tortillas (10 6" tortillas)
Toppings: Salsa, sour cream, shredded cheddar, avocado or guacamole, fresh cilantro

Directions

Grease slow cooker pot with canola spray. Cut strings off of pork and place in slow cooker. Combine spices in a small bowl and mix. Cover all sides of pork roast with spice rub. Add lime juice and pour water over pork. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or medium heat for 6 hours.

Remove lid and shred pork with two forks, discarding pieces of fat as necessary. Assemble tacos and enjoy!
