Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork Tacos

dr pepper pulled pork tacosI saw The Pioneer Woman make Dr. Pepper pulled pork on her television show. I love my recipe for Dr. Pepper pulled pork, but her recipe had chipotles in it, which I adore.  Once again, the crockpot came through when it came to making shredded meats.  I used two boneless botk chops and two bone-in because that is what I had in our freezer.  These smelled wonderful bubbling away all day...does anyone else notice how often Ree Drummond says "bubbly" on her show?  It is a lot.  So much so that it should be a drinking game.
Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork Tacos

1 onion, chopped
2 to 3 pounds of pork (shoulder, roast or chops)
¼ cup chipotle peppers in adobo
1 can Dr. Pepper
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper

Layer the onion at the bottom of your crockpot. Place the pork on top and spoon in the chipotle peppers. Pour an entire can of Dr. Pepper over the pork, add the salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Shred the pork and return to the crockpot. Let cook for 15 minutes more. Serve on warm flour tortillas with cheese and guacamole.

I gotta give this Dr. Pepper thing a try. Never bust out my Crockpot, and want to more often!

Did these for dinner tonight, freaking AMAZING! We added some sour cream, and instead of guac just sliced some avocados - I didn't want anything to distract from the flavor of the pork! LOVE your recipes, keep 'em coming! :D
