Slow Cooker Pork Tacos - These easy, slow cooker pork tacos allow you to escape the kitchen and come home to a delicious meal all ready to go.

This is such an easy recipe, I pretty much don’t need to post it. You could make this in your sleep. Your five year old could make this in his sleep. It contain a handful of budget-friendly ingredients and the slow cooker does 95% of the work.

You don’t really need the recipe, right?

Yeah, you do. You need to remember that great tasting meals need not be expensive or complicated. They need to be fresh and flavorful. And then you’re set.

These Slow Cooked Pork Tacos can be varied however you see fit. I prefer them pretty straight up: soft tortillas, hot shredded pork, a squeeze of lime, and salsa, sour cream, or guac for topping. If you prefer, you can throw on the cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes, but I don’t think it needs it. In fact, if you wanted to go super-duper simple, you could just toss on chopped onion and cilantro and call it good.

Very good.

The meat will be very tender and shred easily.

    We all split burgers last night. Tonight we’re having slow cooker chicken and dumplings.

    DH is not a fan of pulled pork . . . but for tacos . . . I think he might be swayed. Hmmm. First I need to mix up some more seasonings! 🙂
