Pineapple and Green Chile Pork Tacos

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

I am back now. I even put a post up late yesterday, so make sure to check that one out too. This is another great crock pot recipe. I adapted this recipe for  pineapple and green chile pork tacos from I recipe I saw on Prudence Pennywise.

It was a hit with the whole family. The recipe also made enough for two meals, so the second time we made quesadillas with the meat. Those were equally tasty.

Ingredients
  

  • 3 lb. boneless pork roast boneless ribs would work also, you can even use a bone-in roast but you've got to make sure you get ALL the bones out after cooking
  • 1 20 oz can crushed pineapple with juices
  • 1 16 oz jar tomatillo salsa (green salsa or salsa verde)
  • 2 4 oz cans green chiles, undrained
  • cup brown sugar
  • tortillas
  • toppings for tacos: queso fresco or feta I just used cheddar, chopped cilantro, lime wedges, more green salsa (We used sour cream, guacamole, and pico de gallo)

Instructions
 

  • Combine all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on high for four hours or on low for 6 to eight hours.
  • Shred pork, season to taste with salt and pepper. In a colander, drain juices from crock pot.
  • Mix shredded pork with pineapple/salsa mixture that remains in colander and serve in tortillas with desired accompaniments. It also works great to serve as a quesadilla.

  1. This recipe sounds great! Just wondering – we really watch our sugar intake a hubby is doing Weight Watchers right now. Has anyone tried this with cutting back on the sugar? And if so, was it still good? Thank you!

  7. I made this for my husband last night! I added a small can of tomato paste and about a tsp. of cumin, and it was excellent. I made it into burritos, and the hubby LOVED it!

  9. that looks similar to something i make, only i do mine with pot roast or brisket meat. i hadn't thought of using pineapple in the meat (i put it on the tacos) before. i'll give it a whirl next time i'm making crockpot tacos. thanks!
