Yummy Yummy Pork Tacos

Going along with the food theme of this week, I thought I'd share with you my recipe for yummy pork....



Which can then be made into yummy tacos....


Yummy Yummy Pork Tacos.

For the pork: I placed a 2 lb. pork shoulder in the slow cooker with a few basil leaves and a cinnamon stick. Using a recipe adapted from Food Network, I added one can of sliced chilies (I used a mix of jalapenos and ancho chilies), four chipotles in adobo sauce, 2 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp olive oil, salt, pepper, 1 spoonful minced garlic, and 1/2 white onion (roughly chopped) to a blender to make the sauce. After blending, I cooked the sauce on the stove top for a few minutes, and then added one can of chicken broth. I kept the sauce on the stove for about ten minutes, before pouring it over the pork. 
The pork stayed in the slow-cooker on LOW for approximately 8 hours. 

For the tacos: Drain the meat, warm your tortillas, and choose your toppings.

I used cheese, salsa, and avocado to garnish the tacos


Next comes the best part....
