It's National Taco Day.... so pop a Corona and let's make tacos!  Street tacos are a favorite fast food. They are easy and fun to put together. And this one is great because you can make the pork in the slowcooker... it will be waiting for you when you're hungry. From a quick after work dinner to game day Sunday snacks, tacos just fit!


2 cups store-bought salsa, plus more for serving

2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons dried oregano

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

kosher salt

1 2 1/2-pound boneless pork butt or shoulder, trimmed of excess fat

18 corn tortillas
1/2 cup fresh cilantro sprigs 3/4 cup sour cream
1 lime, cut into wedges


Step 1 In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the salsa, chili powder, oregano, cocoa, and 1 teaspoon salt. Add the pork and turn to coat.

Step 2 Cook, covered, until the meat is tender and pulls apart easily, on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours.

Step 3 Twenty minutes before serving, heat oven to 350° F.

Step 4 Stack the tortillas, wrap them in foil, and bake until warm, about 15 minutes.

Step 5 Meanwhile, using 2 forks, shred the pork and stir into the cooking liquid. Serve with the tortillas, cilantro, sour cream, lime, and extra salsa.

Pet of the Week 

Bendito…at first I thought, ‘What kind of funny name did they give me?’ When I found out it means “blessed” in Spanish, I decided it was a perfect fit, since I’m definitely fortunate to have ended up here. Everyone is so nice to me and I have lots of good food to eat and even some pals to play with! As nice as it is here, I’m hoping that there’s a family out there meant just for me. I’m only five months old and I have lots of energy so hopefully I can find someone who can keep up with my energy level. Read more about me here.
