Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Tenderloin Chipotle Honey Tacos are a delicious and easy meal, perfect for weeknight dinners, game day or Taco Tuesday!
I first shared this recipe on the blog 4 years ago and it’s been one of the most popular recipes ever since, so I decided it deserved some fancy new pictures!
In addition to being totally Instagram-worthy, these tacos are so delicious! They’ve got smokey, sweet and spicy flavors going on in the chipotle honey pulled pork and are topped with creamy avocado and salty cotija cheese for the most perfect taco ever!
Since first creating this recipe, I’ve used the slow cooker pulled pork tenderloin to make tacos, burritos, Pulled Pork Dip (a must for football season!), a Pulled Pork Tamale Casserole and The Ultimate Pulled Pork Nachos (also great for football season!)
This recipe only takes 10 minutes to prep and toss in the slow cooker, making it perfect for an easy weeknight meal.
You can double the recipe and make tacos for dinner during the week, then use the rest for nachos, burritos or pulled pork rice bowls on the weekend!
- 3 tsp chipotle powder
- 2 tsp cumin
- 2 tsp paprika
- 2 lbs pork tenderloin
- ¾ cup honey
- 3 limes (juiced)
- 3 tbsp fresh cilantro
- 8 medium flour or corn tortillas
- 2 large avocados (sliced)
- ½ cup cotija cheese (crumbled)
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro
- 1 lime (sliced into 8 wedges)
In a small bowl combine the chipotle powder, cumin and paprika. Rub onto each pork tenderloin.
Place the tenderloins in a slow cooker.
In another small bowl whisk the honey, lime juice and cilantro together. Pour over the pork in the slow cooker.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours.
Reach a couple of forks in the slow cooker and watch the pork completely fall apart.
Seriously, I went to pull the tenderloin out of the slow cooker to shred it and it fell right apart as soon as I stuck a fork in it. I will now be using pork tenderloin for all of my pulled pork recipes! It’s the most tender cut of pork and ounce for ounce it’s as lean as a skinless chicken breast!
Once the pork is shredded inside the slow cooker, prepare the tacos.
Spoon the pork into warmed tortillas and top with avocado, cotija cheese and fresh cilantro. Serve each taco with a lime wedge for squeezing over the taco.
It’s taco time y’all, grab one or two… or four and dig in!!
