Number of Servings: 14


    2 cups store-bought salsa, plus more for serving
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    2 tablespoons dried oregano
    2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    kosher salt
    1 3-pound boneless pork butt or shoulder, trimmed of excess fat
    3/4 cup sour cream
    8-12 flour tortillas or corn tortillas (not included in calories as I make my own tortillas)


In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the salsa, chili powder, oregano, cocoa, and 1 teaspoon salt. Add the pork and turn to coat.
Cook, covered, until the meat is tender and pulls apart easily, on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours.
Twenty minutes before serving, heat oven to 350░ F.
Stack the tortillas, wrap them in foil, and bake until warm, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, using 2 forks, shred the pork and stir into the cooking liquid. Serve with the tortillas, sour cream, and extra salsa.
