Crock Pot Barbecued Pulled-Pork Fajitas

It's time to come indoors from the garden and start cooking again. Even though grilling season isn't completely over for us, we are feeling the urge for home-cooked comfort food. This is an easy Crock Pot recipe you should enjoy making.

Crock Pot Barbecued Pulled-Pork Fajitas

2 1/2 pound trimmed pork loin roast
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 c. barbecue sauce
3/4 cup thick and chunky salsa
1 T. chili powder
1 t. ground cumin
1 bag ( 1 pound) frozen stir-fry bell peppers and onions ( I grow and freeze my own -  you can also use fresh when in season)
1/2 t. salt
18 flour tortillas( 8-10 in. in diameter)
Shredded cheese (cheddar or Colby jack)
Guacamole, if desired
Sour Cream, if desired

1. Place pork in 3-4 quart slow cooker. Place onion on top. Mix barbecue sauce, salsa, chili powder, and cumin; pour over pork and onions.
2. Cover and cook on low heat for 8-10 hours.
3. Remove pork from cooker; place on cutting board.  Shred pork, using two forks.  return to cooker and mix well.  Stir in stir-fry vegetables and salt.  Increase heat setting to high.  Cover and cook 30 minutes or until mixture is hot and vegetables are tender.
4. Using slotted spoon to remove pork mixture from cooker, fill each tortilla with 1/2 c. pork mixture.  Fold one end of tortilla up about 1 inch over filling; fold sides over folded end, overlapping.  Fold remaining end down.  Serve with cheese, guacamole and sour cream.  Makes 18 fajitas.
