Pulled Pork Tacos

This is a super easy and very flavorful version of pulled pork that I make regularly. There's almost nothing to it, it goes in the slow cooker, tastes great, and there's always left overs which are even better! You can use this pork for nachos and in meat buns as well. I'll do these versions soon.


4-5 lb pork butt
Chicken Fajita Seasoning
3 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 jalapeno with cut 3 slits into it
3 Tsp chicken granules (You can use 2 bouillon cubes as well)
1/4 c water

If you can't find this brand of fajita seasoning you can also use Goya, the flavor is different, but it is still yummy.


Generously sprinkle the seasoning on both sides of the pork butt then message the garlic on both sides.

Add 1/4 cup water, jalapeno, and chicken granules to the bottom of cooker. Then place the pork butt in the slow cooker fatty side up.

Cook on high for 3 hours then turn down to low for another 3 hours. If you want to let it go all day just put it on low and cook for 8 hours. When done you should be able to easily scrape the fatty layer off.

Remove the meat from the slow cook and pull apart with 2 forks. At this point it should be so tender that you can barely scoop it out of the pot without it falling apart!

I use my handy dandy electric griddle to warm the tortillas.

I always make home made pico de gallo when I make this and we like to add sour cream as well. That's just how we roll in this house!

Happy eating!
