Spicy Pulled Pork Taquitos with
Avocado Cream Dipping Sauce

© Courtesy of California Avocado Commission

Cool Avocado Cream Dipping Sauce (see make–ahead recipe below)
1 (15–oz.) can black beans, drained
1 (15.25–oz.) can kernel corn, drained
Spicy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork (see make–ahead recipe below)
20 flour tortillas
3 cup mixed blend cheese
Cooking spray
Kosher salt, to taste

Spicy Slow cooker Pulled Pork
1 medium yellow onion, sliced
2 1/2 lb. pork tenderloin
1 (10–oz.) can diced tomatoes and green chiles with lime and cilantro, drained
3 Tbsp. chili powder
1/4 cup cumin
2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. cayenne
1 Tbsp. garlic salt
6 oz. dark Mexican beer


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Add the beans and corn into the cooker with the Spicy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork and simmer over low heat while the oven heats up and you prep the tortillas and cheese. Grab a tortilla, and place a bit of cheese on it. Place some spicy pulled pork on the tortilla; tight roll the tortilla and place seam side down in your greased baking dish. Repeat this until your baking dish is full. Bake in the oven about 20 minutes, or until the taquitos are golden brown and crisp. Remove from oven and cut rolls in half. Serve warm with Cool California Avocado Cream Dipping Sauce. 
Note: Tortillas are tricky. If you have good tortillas, they will roll with no issue. Some tortillas need to be warmed up with a damp paper towel before rolling. 

Spicy Slow cooker Pulled Pork

Place the onion in the bottom of your slow cooker. Place the pork tenderloin on op of the onion. Pour in the drained tomatoes and chiles with cilantro and lime. In a small bowl mix together the chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, cayenne and garlic salt. Pour mixture over the roast in the slow cooker. Dump the beer over the mixture in the slow cooker and mix the tenderloin around, until you feel it has been well coated. Set your slow cooker to cook on low for 8 hours. At about 6 hours, if you're home, shred the pork with a couple of forks, and drain off any excess liquid, if necessary.
