If you’re looking to put a new twist on tacos, try mixing up your filling by using pork! I love this spicy, tasty treat, and using my slow cooker made this dinner super simple! Takes anywhere from 5-8 hours (depending on what temperature you use), so pop these ingredients in the crock pot in the morning and the dinner practically makes itself! Enjoy!
