Slow-Cooker DIY Fajitas

Serves 8

Active: 10 min/Total: 8 to 10 hr on low
Planning Tip: Pork mixture can be cooked 1 day ahead and refrigerated.
Reheat stovetop or in microwave.

1 cup Mexican-style fajita sauce and marinade (we used World Harbors)
1 Tbsp chopped garlic
3-lb boneless pork shoulder, well trimmed
2 medium red peppers, cut in 1/2-in.-wide strips
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
¼ cup fresh lime juice
¼ tsp salt
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

Serve with: soft flour tortillas, assorted Stand ’n Stuff taco shells, guacamole, shredded lettuce and salsa

1. Mix fajita sauce and garlic in 4-qt or larger slow-cooker. Add pork; turn to coat. Scatter peppers around pork. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours or until pork is very tender.

2. At least 20 minutes or up to 2 hours before serving, toss onion slices with lime juice and salt in a small serving bowl. Then refrigerate, tossing occasionally, until onions are slightly wilted.

3. Remove pork to a cutting board. Shred with 2 forks into bite-size pieces. Return to slow-cooker; stir in cilantro.

4. Spoon into a serving bowl and let guests fill their own tortillas or taco shells. Serve with the pickled onion.
