Pork Tacos with Mango Salsa


Recommended Posts

I've made quite a few tacos in my day, but you can't beat the tender filling made in a slow cooker. These are by far the best pork tacos we've had—and we've tried plenty. Make the mango salsa from scratch if you have time! 

Ingredients

2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons white vinegar
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 cups cubed fresh pineapple
1 small red onion, coarsely chopped
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 bottle (12 ounces) dark Mexican beer
3 pounds pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jar (16 ounces) mango salsa
24 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:
Cubed fresh pineapple
Cubed avocado
Queso fresco

Directions

Puree first nine ingredients in a blender; stir in beer. In a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker, combine pork and pineapple mixture. Cook, covered, on low until pork is very tender, 6-8 hours. Stir to break up pork.

Stir cilantro into salsa. Using a slotted spoon, serve pork mixture in tortillas; add salsa and toppings as desired.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled meat mixture and cooking juices in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally.
