Slow Cooker Pork Carnita Tacos

By slow cooking the pork all day, you get meat that doesn’t dry out, and by frying up it in oil, you get the crispy carnita flavor!


  • 1 1/2 lb pork loin
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon and 1 teaspoon chili powder, divided
  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced into rings
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

For the tacos –

  • Corn tortillas, warmed
  • Diced sweet onion
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Trader Joe’s Green Dragon hot sauce (or any green hot sauce)


  1. Spray crockpot with nonstick spray. Place pork in crockpot and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon seasonings. Carefully place jalapeΓ±o slices on pork, as seen below. Pour water into crockpot, careful not to pour over pork. Cook on low for 5-7 hours.
  2. When pork is done, pull from crockpot and shred.
  3. Place into large skillet and drizzle with olive oil and 1 Tablespoon chili powder. Cook over medium high, covered, for 3 minutes without stirring.
  4. Stir once, and cook for additional 3 minutes. Stir, and cook for additional 2 minutes if more browning is desired.
  5. Serve pork in tortillas topped with onion, cilantro, and sauce.
