Slow Cooker Carnitas

We are in desperate need of a taco night in my house! I used to make tacos at least once a week but stopped since no one else wanted them for dinner. My husband has never been a huge fan of tacos but myself, on the other hand, have always been obsessed with them! I decided to take matters into my own hands tonight and make them regardless of what anyone else thinks! I did decide on Carnitas to mix things up. This recipe is super easy and super delish and was a hit with my taco loathing husband!

Slow Cooker Carnitas
2-3 lb pork loin roast (shoulder is good too)
1 yellow onion, cut into chunks
1 tbsp. chili powder
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. all spice
juice of one lime
juice of one orange
1/2 cup chicken broth
tortillas (I used multi-grain flour)
shredded monterrey jack cheese, red onion, cilantro for toppings

Place roast in bottom of the crock pot. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Shred pork and spoon into warm tortillas. Top with toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
