Who doesn’t love tacos? Toss all the ingredients for this meaty taco base into a crock pot before you dash out the door in the morning and let it work its magic all day. Add toppings and either tortillas or Romaine lettuce leaves and you’ll have a DIY dinner in a flash!


  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 3 pounds boneless pork shoulder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can diced fire-roasted tomatoes (14 oz.)


  1. Cut the pork into four or five pieces. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Mix the spices and salt in a large bowl. Add the pork and toss to coat.
  3. Brown the meat in the heated oil, turning to sear all sides. Remove to the crock pot.
  4. Add the onions, garlic, and tomatoes to the crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  5. Remove the pork and turn the crock pot to high to reduce the sauce. Shred the meat and return to the pot. Stir to mix well.
  6. Serve with tortillas or lettuce leaves and a variety of toppings such as diced avocado, chopped cilantro, and quartered limes.
