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 

HI, I'm Bentley and I'm a six month old Miniature Pinscher mix. I'm cute, cute, cute! I'm also very lovable and sweet. I'm okay with other dogs as long as I can meet them first, but because I like to play a lot, your dog will need to be okay with that. I come with free training classes that I look forward to attending, only because I want to learn how to be a good very boy. I'm a smart little guy, so it shouldn't take me to long to reach that goal. I want to be under your tree this holiday season with a big bow around my neck and a gift tag that says "Forever Yours!" Read more about him here.
