    Put a spicy spin on pulled pork...stir in chili powder and chipotle chilies in Adobo sauce.


    • 1 Tbsp. Packed Brown Sugar
    • 2 Tsp. Salt
    • 2 Tsp. Garlic Powder
    • 1 1/1 Tsp. Ground Mustard
    • 3 Tsp. Chili Powder
    • 3 Lbs. Boneless Pork Shoulder Roast, Trimmed of Fat
    • 8 Oz. Can Tomato Sauce
    • 2 Each Canned Chipotle Chiles, Finely Chopped
    • 1 Tbsp. Adobo Sauce From Chipotle Chiles
    • GARNISH:
    • 20 Each Onion Rolls, Split
    • 5 Medium Avocados, Pitted And Mashed
    • 1 Small Red Onion, Sliced Thin
    • 3 Medium Tomatoes, Cored And Sliced Thin


    1. Spray 4 to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
    2. In small bowl, mix brown sugar, salt, garlic powder, mustard and chili powder. Reserve 2 teaspoons for tomato sauce mixture. Rub seasoning mixture over pork. Place pork in cooker. Sprinkle any remaining seasoning mixture that doesn't stick to pork over top of pork in cooker.
    3. Remove pork from cooker; place on cutting board. Remove liquid from cooker; skim fat from liquid and reserve liquid. Cool pork slightly. With 2 forks, shred pork. Return to cooker. Stir tomato sauce, 2 teaspoons reserved seasoning, chipotle chilies and Adobo sauce into shredded pork; to taste if desired. If desired, stir in some of the reserved cooking liquid for desired moistness.
    4. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 15 to 30 minutes longer or until hot. Spoon about 1/3 cup pork mixture onto bottom half of each bun. Place 3 tablespoons of avocado over top half of onion bun. Serve with tomato and onion slices.
    5. Pork mixture can be kept warm on Low heat setting up to 2 hours; stir occasionally.
    6. TIP: Try substituting chicken for the pork. I used 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, mixed the seasonings to recipe and used 1/8 cup with the chicken. Added 1/8 cup each diced fresh tomatoes, minced red onion and chicken broth for acidity.
