Steeltown's Spicy Tacos

    Spicy Pulled Pork Tacos

    Wonderful flavor in these!

    I did double it, used 7.3lbs pork(bone in), 2 cans of chipotles in adobo, a whole T of cayenne and since I KNOW my slow cooker retains a ton of liquid when I cook, I did just use 1 cup of stock and just left out the water. No issues with the final product, for sure.

    I did the cast iron/stove top browning and even just that cooking smelled delicious. The rest of the day the house smelled like a cantina. Mouth watering.

    I served these with shredded pepperjack, Mexican crema, fresh cilantro and lime wedges. They were gobbled up by the football gang and even with all the other food, hardly any came home.

    I added my picture, per Steeltown's personal request ;-), so I hope it's okay.

    Another keeper, for sure. Easy, makes a lot, and full of flavor.

    KENI!!! I like that there is chipotle peppers in this. I would have to serve this with lettuce and tomatoes as well for the kids....

    LUV!!! :-) Yup, this would be good in hard shells or soft, as traditional as you want or as "Americanized" as you want .... I like using creama and lime wedges instead of sour cream, but it's the same idea and not only a great way to add a lil more acid but also it can cut the heat if they're too spicy for anyone. Of course, we didn't think it was too spicy at all, but it's hard to say when you're so used to it, huh? P7O would have to cut back a bit, I imagine. ;-p

    Nice to see you.... I know I've been MIA for a few months, and I apologize. Who knows how long I'll be back for, now, but hopefully long enough to get a recipe or two made.

    Hey PK! :-) thanks... I know, I know, I'm a horrible phone caller/texter/emailer/replier. Sowwy. But, I did check in at the Refugees, too, since I'm backish.

    You should put this on your try list since you're so afraid of your slow cooker. Especially with the boy home.... more mouth to feed!

    Much love to you both and I'll try to be more available.

    @luv, I know I have, I'm sorry... don't waste time missin' me, sweets, way more important things going on... like figuring out how the lil Miss can possibly be your child if she hates spice. ;-)

    As for Caiden... that's my boy....

    Yea, I need to clean the dust out of my slow cooker and give this a try. Or, since the boy is home, maybe HE can cook this one.

    @pk...for sure, make him earn his keep! ;-)

    Hi lovely Ms. Frankie!!

    Glad you like the pic, okay... no pressure or anything to get a good one cus the uploader of the recipe didn't take time to get his own....slacker!!..... he basically told me, oh, by the way, I need a pic for the recipe so when you make it... uh huh....

    But, it's a good'un and great for gatherings of the familial or other variety. :-)

    Thats a great looking taco. I wish I could take pics like that. Guess I should probably spend more than $45 on a camera : ) Those nachos look good, too

    Thanks, luv.... they were delicious, too!

    @MP!!! great to see you... pics I take of other people's food are more important than the ones I take of mine.... I always hope they can stack up.

    Great to see you .... a lil birdy informed me you had something to celebrate recently, so... ;-) (yay)

    This was easy to throw together early in the day, and smelled fantastic while slow cooking :) I started putting everything in the slow cooker and realized I was out of garlic! GASP! That never happens. Gave a good few shakes of garlic powder to make up. I do think I would add a little more liquid next time, the pork really sucks it up when shredding. Flavor was great! Have a bunch leftover to play with :)
