Spicy Shredded Pork
1/2 of a yellow onion, cut into wedges
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
1 whole pork butt or shoulder (about 3-4 lbs)
2 cans Dr. Pepper or Coke (or one 2 liter)
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. water
1 can (10 oz) medium heat red enchilada sauce
pinch of salt
1. Turn crock pot on to high heat. Place onion wedges onto the bottom of the pot.
2. Salt and pepper the pork butt, then place on top of onion. Pour water and both cans of soda over the pork, add enchilada sauce and brown sugar, stir. Then sprinkle with the chipotle peppers and salt. Place the light on the pot and cook for 6-7 hours. During the cooking process, turn the pork 2-3 times. When the meat is falling apart and really tender, you know it is ready.
3. Remove the pork from the pot and place onto a cutting board. Using two forks shred the meat, discarding any fat. Return meat to the liquid in the pot, heat for an additional hour, keep warm until you are ready to serve it.
