“Slow-cooked pork tenderloin in a very sweet, spicy, smokey, Mexican-inspired sauce. Super easy. Cooks in a crock pot. Great in tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and salads!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dump peppers into a mesh sieve or strainer, and then holding the sieve over your crock pot, pour the Pepsi through them to get all that delicious sauce into the pot. Discard peppers.(I know it seems like a waste, but adding the peppers will make it too spicy. This small amount of sauce is perfect for the recipe.).
  2. Add remaining ingredients and then stir until combined.
  3. Trim as much visible fat from the pork as you can.
  4. Add the meat to the crock pot.
  5. Cook on high for 5 hours.
  6. Shred the pork with two forks and then lower the temperature to low, and cook an additional 3 - 4 hours, until the meat is a nice mahogany color.
