Ingredients

    1 medium onion, chopped
    3 canned chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce
    1 tablespoon lime juice
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 - 12 ounce can diet coke
    1 - 1 1/2 lb boneless pork tenderloin, fat trimmed
    1/2 cup non fat greek yogurt, plain
    8 Healthy Life hamburger buns
    Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

1. In a blender or food processor combine onion, chipotle chile peppers, lime juice, garlic, and cumin. Cover and blend or process until smooth, adding as much of the cola as needed to make a smooth mixture. Stir in remaining cola.

2. Trim excess fat from meat. Season meat generously with salt and pepper. Place meat in slow cooker. Pour cola mixture over pork.

3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.

4. Remove meat from cooker; remove cooking liquid from slow cooker and reserve. When meat is cool enough to handle, use two forks to shred meat, discarding any fat. Return meat to cooker. Skim fat from cooking liquid; transfer 1 cup cooking liquid to a small saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup. Season to taste with salt.

5. Stir 1 tablespoon reduced cooking liquid into the yogurt. Spread yogurt on cut sides of buns. Add remaining reduced cooking liquid to shredded meat and stir to moisten. Use a slotted spoon to remove meat from slow cooker; serve on buns.
