Pineapple Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Crema

We’ve sweetened up the classic pulled pork taco with these Pineapple Pulled Pork Tacos. But before we let these bad boys get too sweet on us, we added an avocado crema with a generous amount of lime juice that really pulls this whole taco together. Are these tacos worth waking up at 5:30 so that they can slow cook all day for dinner? YES!

Ingredients

Crock-pot Ingredients

  • 3 lbs Pork shoulder (pork butt)
  • 4 ounces Canned Green Chiles
  • 8 ounces Canned Pineapple Chunks in Heavy Syrup
  • 2 cups Chipotle Salsa
  • Salt to taste

Avocado Crema

  • 2 whole Avocados
  • 4 Green Onions Finely Chopped
  • 2 tbsp Sour Cream
  • 3 1/2 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1.4 cup Cilantro Finely Chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic Minced
  • Salt to taste

(Optional Toppings)

  • Green Onions Chopped
  • Pico De Gallo

Instructions

Pineapple Pulled Pork

  1. Trim excess fat from pork shoulder. Place the pork in the bottom of the crock-pot. Lightly salt the pork. Dump the pineapple with juices, green chiles, and salsa over the pork.

  2. Cook for 6 hours (or desired setting).

  3. Remove the pork and shred it using two forks. If the sauce in the crock-pot is thick enough, add it to the shredded pork. If not, drain as much excess juice as possible before adding it to the pork.

Avocado Crema

  1. Mash Avocados in a medium size bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mash to combine again. 

Serving

  1. Fill tortillas with the shredded pork first. Spoon and spread a layer of avocado crema on top and finish it off with some pico de gallo or other toppings.
