Whenever my husband and I head to our favorite Mexican restaurant, he always orders fajitas. For some reason, the smoke from the fajitas zeros in on my eyes. Why doesn’t it go towards him? My Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Fajitas are delicious and there’s no smoke in my eyes. It’s a win-win!
We need a Mexican food fix every single week. Pulled Pork Fajitas satisfies those cravings and because it’s made in the slow cooker, the pork is tender and juicy. The seasonings add another level of flavor. If you have leftovers, freeze them for up to four months.
The slow cooker helps me so much with weekday meals. I place the ingredients in the slow cooker first thing in the morning and forget about it.
Every Sunday I have a crowd over for lunch. I get the main dish going in the slow cooker before church and when we get home, the entree is done. I warm up a few sides that I cooked before church, add rolls and we’re good to go.
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Fajitas
Remove excess fat from the pork loin and place in the slow cooker. Arrange sliced onions and peppers on top. Add the seasonings, barbecue sauce, and salsa. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Serve in tortillas, topped with sauce from the slow cooker.
I usually add shredded cheese, sour cream and chives to top off the Pulled Pork Fajitas. Charred avocados also pair well with Pulled Pork Fajitas.
