Chipotle Spiced Shredded Pork Recipe

Here is another great Pulled Pork Recipe plus you get to put it in a crockpot and go!!! One of our top recipes on the blog is Easy Pulled Pork using the Instant Pot. Although I prefer cooking my Pork in the Instant Pot, not everyone has one. Using the Slow Cooker is still a great way to get tender, delicious pork, it just takes a lot longer.

I get a ton of questions asking if this recipe is like making Barbacoa Barbeque and it’s not. In the U.S., barbacoa is often prepared with parts from the heads of cattle, such as the cheeks. In northern Mexico, it is also sometimes made from beef head, but more often it is prepared from goat meat. This version uses pork loin roast.

How to make Chipotle Spiced Shredded Pork:

You only need a few ingredients to make this Chipotle Spiced Shredded Pork Recipe. Boneless pork loin roast, green chiles, garlic, chipotle sauce, lime juice, cilantro and some salt and pepper.

You are going to start by dicing the pork in 2 inch pieces. Then sprinkle some salt and pepper all over the roast, and set in the crockpot. In a bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients, then pour over the pork in the crockpot, making sure a little gets underneath. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours or until pork is fork tender.

Remove the pork from the crockpot to a cutting board and use a couple forks to pull the meat apart into shreds, then put the pork back in the crockpot.

Stir and allow to cook 10 to 15 more minutes. If you like your pork to have a little extra kick, then just add more of the green chilis.

There are so many ways that you can serve this Chipotle Spiced Shredded Pork. On a hearty bun or roll, tacos enchiladas, quesadillas, burritos, sliders and so much more.

This Chipotle Pork will also freeze well. Just re-heat on those nights you don’t feel like cooking and dinner is served in no time!
