Enjoy these slow cooker green chile pork tacos any night of the week!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 pounds Pork Shoulder Roast (Butt Roast)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 pieces Poblano Chile Peppers, Seeded And Cut In Half
  • 1 piece Jalapeño, Seeded And Cut In Half
  • 1 piece Green Bell Pepper, Seeded And Cut In Half
  • 1 pound Tomatillos, Husks Removed And Quartered
  • 1 piece Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 4 cloves Garlic (whole)
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • ⅓ bunches Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
  • 2 cups Low Sodium Chicken Stock
  • 1  Bay Leaf
  • 16  Corn Tortillas (try My Homemade Corn Tortillas)
  • 14  Red Onion, Finely Diced For Topping
  • ⅓ cups Queso Fresco (Mexican Cheese), Crumbled
  • 2  Limes, For Topping

Preparation

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over high heat.

Season pork with the salt and pepper and then add to the hot oil. Sear on all sides until golden brown, about 2–3 minutes per side.

Places the browned pork into the bowl of a slow cooker, followed by the poblano chiles, jalapeno, green bell pepper, tomatillos, yellow onion, garlic, ground cumin, dried oregano, cilantro, chicken broth or stock, and bay leaf. Turn heat to low and cook 6–7 hours, or until pork is tender enough to be pulled apart with a fork.

Remove pork and shred using a fork (you may need to wait for it to cool a bit).

In the meantime, remove bay leaf from the slow cooker and discard. Either using an immersion blender directly in the slow cooker bowl or by transferring slow cooker contents to a kitchen blender, puree the cooked peppers, onion, and chicken broth mixture until smooth. This is the chile verde sauce. Woohoo! Season to taste with any salt as needed.

To serve, layer corn tortillas on a flat surface (I highly recommend looking for good quality corn tortillas—you may need to wrap in damp cloth and microwave for 10–20 seconds to make them pliable). Top the tortillas with a mound of the shredded pork, followed by 1 to 2 tablespoons of the pureed chile verde sauce. You can also top with additional chopped cilantro, diced red onion, and/or crumbled queso fresco. Feel free to squeeze some lime juice as well!
