Hands off dinner #1: Crock Pot Pulled-Pork (or chicken!) Fajitas

Crock Pot Pulled-Pork Fajitas


  • 2 1/2 lbs boneless pork loin roast

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 cups barbecue sauce

  • 3/4 cup salsa

  • 3 tablespoons chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon Mexican seasoning

  • 9 flour tortillas


    Trim off excess fat from pork.

    Place pork in slow cooker and place onions on top of roast.

    Mix remaining ingredients together except tortillas; pour over pork.

    cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until pork is very tender.

    Remove pork; place on large platter or cutting board and pull pork apart.

    Place pork in serving bowl and pour sauce on top.

    Spoon filling into tortillas and roll up.

    **Angie's notes: We LOVE this dish. I've made it with both pork and boneless, skinless chicken breasts. You can use the meat with tortillas, buns or on a salad - it's very versitile. We'll be eating the chicken version with tortillas, sour cream, a little extra salsa and lettuce. I usually make a "salad" out of mine and cut out the tortilla carbs. I will be making a double batch (just over double, actually) and will freeze the leftovers into 2 containers for future meals. Please consider that the meat will cook down a lot, and that each Crock Pot varies in cooking time. It will fall apart when it is ready.
