Flaming Slow Cooker Pork

Recipe by  

"If you are not a pork fan, substitute chicken breasts! Blazing hot peppers highlight this dish! Pork tenderloin is slow cooked with hot picante sauce and canned chipotle chili peppers. Start it early in the morning for fiery pork burritos for dinner. I like to serve this with flour tortillas, black beans, shredded cheese, corn, and sour cream. This recipe can also be adjusted for spice by using different peppers or omitting the peppers completely."

  2. Cover and cook on High until the pork is tender enough to be shredded easily with 2 forks, about 5 hours. Remove pork to a cutting board, shred, and return to sauce. Continue cooking on Low another 3 to 4 hours.

This was quite tasty - With some adjustments - I think very few could really enjoy it as written. I used 16oz of Medium salsa (that brand that's NOT made in New York City), which is pretty hot in its own right, only 3 of the chipotle peppers in adobo, the can of chilis & the lime. Once cooked, all we could really taste was HOT. I drained most of the juice (as that's where most of the heat was), then added a little mild salsa, adobo seasoning and a dash of worcestershire and let it go for another hour or so. The result was quite tasty, I have to admit, and I think we'd do it again, maybe use just the adobo sauce & pull out the peppers?

My husband loves spicy food, but this recipe was too spicy even for him. I will definitely not make it again ay his request.

This is not for the faint of heart! My husband and I loved it, but our tongues were on fire long after we ate. I don't usually care for pork, but this was great.

Thanks for sharing this recipe. We loved this recipe and I will make this again! Though I have to admit I only used about 4 of the peppers in the can and 1/2 of the adobo sauce. I did add some bell peppers and a jalapeno since I had them. My husband Loved it!

For some reason, I ended up using pork loins instead... But it all turned out well. I was expecting this dish to be blazing hot as I used the entire can of chipotle peppers and a hot picante sauce. But surprisingly, it was delightfully hot without being over the top spicy. Next time I might try to use a pork roast instead for pulled pork.

Love this recipe! I make this frequently on the weekends then freeze it for easy meals during the week. I usually make 2 separate freezer meals from this. So delicious and easy!

This recipe is ridiculously yummy! I absolutely recommend it. It is so flavorful - and great cold on sandwiches the next day. I only used about 3/4 of the can of chipotle peppers with adobo sauce. I was worried it would be way too hot. It was fine and I will probably continue to use the same amount when I make it again. And I will definitely be making this again and again.
