Updated Jun 29, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 lb boneless pork shoulder roast, trimmed
  • 3/4 cup Old El Paso™ mild salsa
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium avocado, cubed
  • 1/2 cup halved and thinly sliced onion
  • 12 small Old El Paso™ flour tortillas or Old El Paso™ taco shells
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook pork in oil 6 to 8 minutes or until brown on both sides. Place pork in slow cooker. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until pork pulls apart easily with fork.
  • 2
    Remove pork from slow cooker; shred pork. Reserve 1/4 cup liquid in slow cooker; discard remaining liquid. Stir pork, salsa, chili powder and cumin into liquid in slow cooker.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, vinegar and salt. Gently stir in avocado and onion. To serve, place pork in tortillas; top with avocado-onion slaw and chopped cilantro.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The avocado-onion slaw adds creaminess as well as crunch, but for those who are not avocado fans, try substituting diced tomato or shredded lettuce in its place.
  • tip 2
    If you have no chili powder or cumin on hand, substitute 1 3/4 teaspoons Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix in their place.
