A good friend of ours kept raving about these tacos, so we made her give us the recipe. We cooked them tonight and they were absolutely delicious! I've tasted this flavor before, but never been able to duplicate it. The combination of flavors is just amazing. I don't eat too much meat anymore, and when I do I want it to be worth it. These definitely are. Have them at home or bring them to a tailgate or picnic and they will be a huge hit!

  1. In a 4-6 quart slow cooker, combine the salsa, chili powder, oregano, cocoa, and 1 tsp salt. Add pork and turn to coat.
  2. Cook covered until the meat is tender and pulls apart easily, on high for 6-8 hours.
  3. Twenty minutes before serving, heat oven to 350 F. Stack the tortillas, wrap them in foil, and bake until warm about 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, using two forks, shred the pork and remove any obvious fat chunks. Stir into the cooking liquid. Serve with the tortillas, cilantro, sour cream, lime, extra salsa, and other optional fixings.

    It's almost impossible to make something that tastes this good with this little effort. This pork packs an amazing punch of flavor!

      Using a couple of smokeless tabletop grills, I served a party of eight with this recipe and guests 'made' their own tacos or burritos (depending on choice of corn or flour tortillas). Because we have a large island, I placed a lazy susan filled with topping choices between every two guests. I pre-fried the corn tortillas and warmed the flour tortillas and guests had the option of re-heating them atop the grills before stuffing. What a wonderful recipe and thanks so much.
