This Mexican Pulled Pork is a great weeknight throw together, as in throw everything into the crock pot or slow cooker (whichever you prefer) and just forget about it. It makes a wonderful taco filling for taco night!!
Actually you could use this meat a lot of different ways-tacos, quesadillas, pizza, nachos…….let your imagination run wild!! I served it on pita bread as my taco shell and topped with the traditional toppings of cheddar, tomato, avocado, you know.
Anyway, this is one meal I turn to often because it makes a large amount and as I said you can do so many different things with it. I will often get 3 meals out of this one recipe! We usually just have tacos the first night. The next meal is quesadillas with some refried beans and then it depends on how much is left for the third- sometimes I turn it into a mexican pizza, yum!
However you decide to use this versatile mexican pulled pork, I’m sure your family will love it!
