Easy Slow Cooker Al Pastor Tacos



  • 4-5 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 4-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chile powder
  • 1 (14.5oz) bottle Tenayo Spicy Al Pastor BBQ Sauce
  • 8 ounces orange juice
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 cup fresh chopped pineapple

Homemade Corn Tortillas:

  • 2 cups masa
  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Avocado oil 


  • Homemade (or store-bought) corn tortillas
  • Fresh chopped pineapple
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Chopped onion
  • Crumbled cotija cheese
  • Sliced radishes


  1. Place pork into the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker and generously season with salt and chile powder. Pour in one cup of Spicy Al Pastor Barbecue Sauce, orange juice and lemon juice. Stir to combine. Top with onions and pineapple, then cook on low for 8 hours or until pork shreds easily. Transfer pork to a cutting board to shred, then mix with remaining Spicy Al Pastor Barbecue Sauce.
  2. To make the homemade tortillas, combine the masa, water and salt in a large bowl and mix until well combined. Roll dough into small balls and press or roll flat.
  3. Heat a skillet or comal over medium-high heat. Lightly grease with oil. Add tortillas, one at a time, and cook until puffed and golden. Flip and cook one minute more, or until brown spots begin to appear. Remove from skillet and repeat with remaining dough. Wrap tortillas in a towel to keep warm.
  4. Serve Al Pastor pork on warm tortillas with toppings of choice.
