Juice of 1 medium lime
teaspoons rice vinegar
cup chopped fresh cilantro

Tortillas and Additional Fillings

to 12 Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for soft tacos & fajitas (6 inch), warmed, OR 4 to 6 Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for burritos (8 inch)
Sliced avocado, as desired (for tacos)

  • 1 Spray 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  • 2 Add Pork ingredients to slow cooker; stir. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or High heat setting 6 to 8 hours.
  • 3 Meanwhile, make Sweet Summer Corn Slaw. Heat grill on high. Brush corn with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Wrap corn in 1 layer of foil. Place on grill. Cook 10 minutes, rotating corn 3 times. Cook 10 to 15 minutes longer; remove foil, and cook corn 5 minutes longer. Remove corn from grill, and allow to cool 5 minutes. Use sharp knife to cut off corn kernels, and add kernels to medium bowl.
  • 4 To same bowl, add remaining slaw ingredients and a pinch of salt. Toss well; cover and place in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • 5 When pork is cooked and falling apart, remove it from slow cooker, and allow to cool slightly. Shred pork with 2 forks, and drizzle with sauce left in slow cooker.
  • 6 To assemble tacos, place a little warm pork in warmed 6-inch tortilla; top with sliced avocado and slaw. Sprinkle with cheese. Repeat to use remaining 6-inch tortillas.
  • 7 To assemble burritos, heat one 8-inch tortilla at a time in microwave 30 seconds. Working quickly, layer cheese, hot rice, warm pork, black beans and slaw toward 1 end of tortilla. Fold sides over the line of ingredients, and roll up tortilla (try to roll tight). Repeat to use remaining 8-inch tortillas.

Expert Tips

Removing the foil from the corn for the last few minutes of grilling helps the corn get a nice smoky grilled flavor, and it leaves delicious charred marks.
