Slow Cooker Baja Chipotle Pulled Pork
I ran across this recipe in one of my cookbooks and was really excited to try it because it uses one of my all-time favorite bottled marinades – Lawry’s Baja Chipotle marinade. I love the smoky mesquite flavor in the marinade. It makes chicken taste amazing, so I could only image a pork butt slow cooked all day in it. (I was also thinking why I haven’t done this before.)
This is super simple to make. Season the pork with some BBQ seasoning, put in the slow cooker, top with BBQ sauce and the Baja Chipotle marinade and let it slow cook all day. It smelled fantastic while it was cooking; I couldn’t wait to tastes it. OMG! SO good! Tender, juicy and full of amazing flavor! We served this on slider buns and topped it with some extra BBQ sauce. You can also top with sliders with some coleslaw and fried onions. The leftover pork is great on a salad, on top of nachos or in a quesadilla.
*I buy the Lawry’s Baja Chipotle marinade at Publix. If you can’t find the Baja Chipotle marinade, you can use the Mesquite marinade and add a some diced chipotles in adobo sauce from the can.*
