What you’ll need to make slow cooker tacos:
To make these delicious tacos with pork we’ll be using a pork roast. About 4 pounds will serve between 8 and 12 people or leave you with some leftovers that go great on salads, burritos, etc throughout the week.
We will also need some onion, water, cumin, pepper, salt, and cajun spice! That’s it! This recipe is super simple. It takes a relatively inexpensive cut of meat and turns it into a delicious dinner everyone will devour.
