 {Fajita Pulled-Pork Wraps with Avocado-Onion Slaw}

Today's recipe share is a new recipe try for me,
and it earned itself a smiley face :0)
The recipe was located while perusing through my stacks and stacks of cookbook magazines. I have a real weakness for these...  I stand and glance at them, while waiting in the check-out lane of the grocery store and I have a real hard time resisting the temptation to buy...
anyone else have a "cookbook magazine weakness"???  


It's a crock pot recipe and would make a wonderful item to serve if you're hosting a super-bowl gathering.   The recipe comes from a magazine by Pillsbury, titled Slow Cooker - 325 hearty recipes  


Let's begin, shall we...
In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.   Brown all sides of a 3 pound pork shoulder/butt roast until nicely browned.  Season with freshly ground salt and pepper.  It is this step that will seal in the meat juices.
After meat is browned, place in a low temp crock pot; cook for 7 - 8 hours or until the meat starts to fall apart.

When the meat is done, shred with two forks...
the meat will easily fall apart,
yummy!
Go ahead, snitch a taste...
season with salt and pepper to your liking.
Add 2 tsp chili powder, 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin and one 16 oz jar of mild, thick and chunky salsa;mix well.
Now it's time to make the Avocado-Onion Slaw...
don't skip this part folks,
it is what really makes these fajitas good.  The slaw adds a nice and creamy crunch. 

Finely chop 1/4 cup fresh cilantro

Using one medium onion, halved and thinly sliced

Pit and peel two medium sized avocados.
Cut into 1/2" cubes.
In a medium bowl, mix 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons white vinegar and 1/2 tsp salt.  Stir in onions and cilantro.
Gently stir in avocado chunks.
 Warm tortillas (6 inch size) according to package directions.  Spoon pork mixture on tortillas; top with avocado-onion slaw.

And for an added kick,
if you wish,
season with freshly ground pepper and a dash of lemon/lime salt...
adds just the right about of lemon-lime kick!

Spanish Rice makes a quick and easy side dish to these fajitas.

I make pulled pork using coke in a similar recipe for the crock pot. I will definitely give this one a try. I made you upside down chicken and it was delicious.

What luck! Sunday I cooked up a pork roast to use for pork tacos on Monday. Saw your post Monday so all I needed was the Onion Avocado Slaw. How convenient was that?! It was delicious! Definite keeper. We are having leftovers tonight!
