One of the blessed parts of going to visit my family in Utah is that they are all foodie-folk. My sister Auntie Em has an amazing garden and while I was visiting her and giggling all night over girlie girl things...we raided her garden. Now there's a visual huh?
Her cherry tomatoes were organic heaven!
Add to that the juice of 2 limes and some salt and pepper to taste. It was simple and perfect. Like Em.
Now my mom slow cooked a 2 pound roast in a crock pot with a can of Dr. Pepper (yes...that is the secret ingredient), 2 whole chopped onions, 3 cloves of garlic and 1T of ancho chile powder. After 4 hours it looked like this:
We added 3 T of my fajita seasoning to the shredded meat...
My brother in law Chris Grilled some fresh corn tortillas straight on the stove. I think you need tongs for this to work...by the way...YUM. It made the tortillas so nice and toasty!
Topped them with a pile of shredded pork, Auntie Em's salsa and one of my favorite Mexican cheeses...Cotija...Love...
There it is! The pulled pork tacos of love. Now you know the secrets.
