  • 1 orange
  • 2 large cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 lb. boneless pork shoulder trimmed and cut into 1 1/2" pieces
  • 1 tsp. ancho chili powder
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 small red onion
  • 3 tbsp. lime juice
  • 8 small corn or flour tortillas warmed
  • Cilantro for serving
  • diced avocado for serving


  • Grate the zest of the orange into a 5 to 6-quart slow cooker, then squeeze in the juice (you should get at least 1/2 cup). Stir in the garlic and vinegar.
  • Season the pork with the chili powder, oregano, cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add to the slow cooker and toss to coat. Cover and cook until the meat is tender and shreds easily, 7 to 8 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high.
  • Twenty minutes before serving, make the pickled onions. Thinly slice the onion and toss with the lime juice and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Let sit, tossing occasionally, until ready to serve.
  • Using two forks, shred the meat and toss with the cooking juices. Pile onto tortillas, top with the onions, cilantro, and avocado, if using.
