Pork Barbacoa and 2015 Crock Pot Giveaway

Pork Barbacoa Tacos

We are continuing our 2015 Christmas giveaway with a delicious Pork Barbacoa cooked in the crock pot.  This recipe reminds me of Cafe Rio.  If you’ve never been to a Cafe Rio, I am sad for you, because it is so delicious.  We’ve made a slaw to top these tasty tacos.  (Like my alliteration?)  The Tapatillo in the slaw gives it a nice heat, which balances well with the sweetness of the pork.  The corn tortillas bring it all together.  Hint:  Don’t skip on the Mexican sour cream.  It has a tang that regular sour cream just cannot beat.  Give it a try, and don’t forget to enter the contest below!

    1. And in the crock pot! But slow your horses a tad, lol. This is more of an “adjacent” recipe than a copycat, but it’s still really, really effing good! 😉 Now all I need is a fresh tortilla recipe AND a cilantro ranch recipe. (*wheels are turning…) Mmmm, Cafe Rio!

  1. Love being able to make delicious meals for my family and thanks to the Reynolds bags now for the crockpot it makes it even easier to clean up! I like making beef stew, chilly a variety of things.

  2. I like that I can set it and forget it. Also it’s great when say, you have to pick someone up at the airport and it takes 4 hours round trip, and you don’t want to cook when you get home!
