Not Just Any Pulled Pork Tacos

I must admit, I am leery when it comes to pork recipes. I have been burned before... and often. But this recipe was a home run. I especially enjoyed it the next day on a bed of rice, some sour cream and sliced olives on top. It was a bit spicy for our shorter residents. I would suggest eliminating or half-ing the cayenne if you are making it for kids. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork via Can You Stay for Dinner

1 lb pork tenderloin, or chicken
1 15 oz can tomato sauce, or one 12 oz jar salsa
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon salt
3 cloves garlic, minced

Place pork in the base of your slow cooker. In a small bowl, stir together all remaining ingredients. Pour evenly over pork. Cook on low for 8 hours. When done, shred the pork using two forks, pulling against the grain of the meat. Serve in warmed tortillas with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, grated cheddar cheese, and sour cream.
