Slow Cooker Pork Adobada Tacos

Slow Cooker Pork Adobada Tacos

These tacos are soooo good!  You can make them as spicy or as mild as you want depending on how much of the seeds you keep.  Sometimes, I will add some chiptole pepper to it as well.  I usually make it a little on the milder side for my family and then just put a lot of hot sauce on it.

They are great for game day.  If we are having Football party, I like to make these and have all the fixing’s laid out on the counter and then guests can just go make their own whenever they are hungry.  You need to keep things super casual on game day, can’t risk missing a big play!  Enjoy and Go Pats!!!!
