  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Pinch ground cinnamon

Chipotle Honey BBQ Sauce

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon honey
  • 6 teaspoons chipotle chiles in adobo
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of pepper

Other Ingredients

  • 6- inch flour tortillas
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Optional: Sour Cream, green onions, more BBQ sauce for dipping.

Instructions

  • Remove the outer peels of the onion and thinly slice the onions. Layer a large slow cooker with the sliced onions and garlic.
  • Remove the packaging on the pork.
  • Combine the brown sugar, chili powder, salt, cumin, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Stir and then rub evenly over the pork.
  • Place the pork in the slow cooker and pour the chicken broth over the meat.
  • Cook for 6-8 hours on high or 9-11 hours on low.
  • Once the meat is completely cooked through, drain the liquid and discard (or eat) the onions.
  • Using two forks shred the pork.

Chipotle Honey BBQ Sauce

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend or process until smooth.
  • Taste and adjust ingredients to preferences (you may want more chipotle or a little more salt or pepper).

Putting it together.

  • Mix the sauce with the pulled pork until completely combined.
  • Place about 3-4 tablespoons of the meat mixture in the middle of a flour tortilla. Top with 1-2 tablespoons of cheese and roll up tightly.
  • Place 3-4 of the taquitos in a pre-heated skillet (warm the skillet to medium heat and then turn to low heat to cook the taquitos on).
  • Using tongs, rotate the taquitos on to each side for 10-15 seconds or until browned and crispy.
  • If desired, you can cook these in the oven (425 degrees F for 10-13 minutes).
  • Enjoy with a dollup of sour cream and green onions if desired.
