Simple Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos

Tried this recipe from Just A Taste last night and it was fantastic!  A touch of cocoa powder and a bottle of beer……who knew?  The author recommends serving with pickled onions and cotija cheese….would have been great last night but I had neither on hand so we served it with leftover slaw.  It was great to put it all in the crock pot early in the morning and have a great dinner waiting when we got home from a busy evening.  Try it!  Click on THIS link to see the author’s presentation and notes, her site it awesome too…..just don’t jump off the Paleo wagon when you visit it!
