My mother served us pulled pork tacos one night. She threw pork loin, salsa & chopped green chiles into her crock pot and let it simmer. It was very tasty but I wanted to kick it up a bit so I added some seasoning to get that yummy flavor I love about well seasoned fajita meet. As this really got going in the crock pot my kindergartener says "It smells like Del Rio in here". Del Rio is a local Mexican restaurant. I had to give him a high five and hugs for that! I knew I must be doing something right :-)
- 2lb. Pork Loin
- 1 Cup Salsa
- 2 Tablespoons Tequila (optional)
- 2 Tablespoons Molasses
- 1/2 Tablespoon Cumin
- 1/2 Tablespoon Chili Powder
- 1 teaspoon Paprika
- 1 large Onion, cut into thick wedges
- 1-2 Jalapenos, diced
- 1 Lime (for Zest & Juice)
- Flour tortillas
- Your favorite fajita/taco toppings
Serve with flour tortillas and your favorite fajita/taco toppings.
*So as not to waste any lime, zest and juice the entire lime, setting half of each aside to use in my Roasted Corn w/Tequila Cream Sauce recipe which makes a wonderful addition to these tacos!
Witch's Notes: Since Pork is the star of this dish and is associated with the Earth Element, this is an excellent meal for grounding. Pork is also known around the globe as a bringer of prosperity as well as fertility. So set your intentions, write your prayers/spells ahead of time (if you're like me and you get lost in cooking and forget your intention) and stir in plenty of positive energy for a great outcome.
