Slow Cooker Citrus Pulled Pork Nachos

I originally came across this recipe about a year or two ago. The Neely's from the Food Network have a citrus pork taco recipe that sounded really good but since we just had tacos I decided to make nachos and cook the pork in the crock pot instead of the oven. The nachos turned out great and I topped them with my fresh citrus salsa. They were amazing!

Slow Cooker Citrus Pulled Pork Nachos
Adapted From Down Home with the Neely's

1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp chipotle chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 pork loin (about 2 pounds)
1 small onion, peeled and quartered
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chicken broth or stock
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 Tbsp honey
1 orange, halved and juiced
1 lime, halved and juiced
salt & pepper, to taste

For the Nachos
1/2 Bag Tortilla chips of your choice
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese ( I used queso fresco)
2 tablespoons sour cream
1/4 cup Citrus Salsa
Additional toppings of your choice

Spray bottom of your slow cooker with non stick cooking spray. Add pork. Combine the spices, tomato paste, honey, stock, and juices and pour over pork. Add onion and garlic. Cook pork on low 6-8 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker and shred. Lay tortilla chips onto baking sheet. Add pork and top with cheese. Broil on low for 4-5 minutes or until cheese is starting to brown. Top with sour cream and salsa along with an additional toppings of your choice.
