Home Crock Pot Pineapple and Green Chile Pork Tacos

Pineapple and Green Chile Pork Tacos

by Laura

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.

Pineapple and Green Chile Pork Tacos


Scale

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
  • 2/3 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

  1. Combine all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on high for four hours or on low for 6 to eight hours.
  2. Shred pork, season to taste with salt and pepper. In a colander, drain juices from crock pot.
  3. 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.

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!

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!

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!

This looks yummy, I'm always looking for new ways to use my crockpot, sadly my family doesn't like soup nearly as much as I do. I also like that you could get use this for leftover especially.
