Why I Love This Recipe

Fun way to serve! Who wouldn't enjoy eating out of a fancy glass?! You can find these at the dollar store and use for a party or just a fun dinner night

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 lb Pork Shoulder, Or Beef If You Prefer
2 Tbsp Oil
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cup Water
2 tsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Bay Leaf
1/2 tsp Cumin
3 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1 Lime, Sliced
1 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
1 cup Grape Tomatoes, Chopped
1 cup Onion, Diced
small Tortillas


*Add 2 Tbsp oil to pan over medium-high heat

*Cut meat into pieces until they will fit in your crockpot

*Season with salt & pepper and add it to the heated oil pan; brown meat on each side

*In a crockpot, on high, combine water, chili powder, cayenne, cumin, garlic, and bay leaf; add the browned meat and simmer 3 1/2 hours

*Once the meat is cooked, it should be falling apart, loosely shred the meat and add it with the juices back into the original pan on stove

*Heat on medium-high another 10 minutes until juices have boiled off and meat is slightly crisped

*Chop onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and slice limes; warm tortillas

*In each tortilla, layer meat, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and any other topping of choice; sprinkle with a squeeze of lime and serve rolled up in a glass filled with rice (serving in glass optional)
