Carnitas Tacos with Spicy Slaw

Mouth Watering Goodness!

1 pork tenderloin 

Put in crock pot the night before:
Pour over pork: one package taco seasoning and one can of dark cola ie: diet pepsi, pepsi, coke. Set to low and leave until the morning)
Remove pork from crock pot and shred. At this point you can store the shredded pork up to three days in the refrigerator until read to use) discard juice.

When ready to make carnitas, add shredded pork to:
1 can enchilada sauce (i use mild)
1/4 small finely diced onion
Simmer on low 10 minutes.

Spicy Slaw:
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup real mayo
(you can use light on these)
2 T Louisiana hot sauce
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/4 tsp cracked pepper
1/4 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 pkg of shredded Cole slaw
Mix all well together

Construct your taco with a soft shell, seasoned pork, spicy slaw and you can add your own other toppings such as shredded cheese, salsa, tomatoes, avocado ect. I like ours just with the meat and slaw.
