Take the best of two Latin favorites: slow-cook pork to juicy perfection, shred, then serve fajita-style with a sultry avocado-onion slaw.

Ingredients

1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1
lb boneless pork shoulder roast, trimmed
3/4
cup Old El Paso™ mild salsa
1
teaspoon chili powder
3/4
teaspoon ground cumin
3
tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
1
tablespoon white vinegar

1/2
cup halved and thinly sliced onion
12
small Old El Paso™ flour tortillas or Old El Paso™ taco shells
1/4
cup chopped cilantro

Expert Tips

The avocado-onion slaw adds creaminess as well as crunch, but for those who are not avocado fans, try substituting diced tomato or shredded lettuce in its place.

If you have no chili powder or cumin on hand, substitute 1 3/4 teaspoons Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix in their place.
