Slow-Cooker Mexican Shredded Pork Tostadas
Deeply flavored shredded pork? Sounds like a job for the slow cooker.
Why This Recipe Works
Good pork tinga (a Mexican dish of spicy shredded meat) is a rewarding labor of love, but for a home version where the slow cooker did the heavy lifting, we had to make a few adjustments to the recipe. To solve the problem of soupiness, we transferred the slow-cooked pork and sauce to a large skillet set over high heat. Ten minutes later, the moisture had cooked off and we had the browned bits of pork that tinga lovers crave. Chipotle chile powder gave our tinga its signature kick, and our favorite taco garnishes—crumbled cheese, lime, cilantro, sour cream, and avocado—added a bright, refreshing counterpoint.
