Equipment

  • Slow Cooker
  • Mixing Bowl

Ingredients

  • 3 pound pork roast
  • 2 cups salsa chunky
  • 12 ounces Dr Pepper Soda

Instructions

  • Place pork roast in slow cooker and fill half full with water. Cook 4 hours on high.

  • Mix salsa, Dr. Pepper, and brown sugar together in a bowl. Pour on top of pork and cook for 4 more hours in the slow cooker on low.

  • Fold up each tortilla into a rectangular packet around the filling and place folded side down in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.

  • Top with sour cream and avocado before serving.
