  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 6-8 tacos


  • (1, cut into chunks.) Pork Boston Butt Roast
  • (1 can (7 oz)) Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
  • (1) Onion, chopped
  • (4 cloves) Minced Garlic
  • (1 Tbsp.) Dried Oregano
  • (1 tsp.) Ground Cumin
  • (1 tsp.) Ground Coriander
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste.
  • (1/2 Cup) Fresh Orange Juice
  • (3 Cups) Beef or Chicken Broth
  • (2) Bay Leaves
  • Soft Tortillas
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, for serving
  • Diced onions, for serving


Prepare Sauce: In a blender, combine the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (use about 3-4 peppers depending on your spice preference), chopped onion, minced garlic, oregano, cumin, coriander, orange juice, salt, pepper, and 1 cup broth. Blend until smooth.

Slow Cook: Place pork in a slow cooker. Pour the sauce over the pork. Add remaining broth and bay leaves. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours until pork is tender and shreds easily.

Shred Pork: Remove pork from slow cooker and shred using two forks. Remove excess fat if desired.

Fry Tortillas: Heat a skillet over medium heat. Dip each corn tortilla into the birria sauce, coating both sides. Then, fry the tortilla in the skillet for about 1 minute on each side until lightly browned and crispy. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Assemble Tacos: Fill each tortilla with shredded pork and cheese. Garnish with chopped cilantro and onions.
Serve: Serve tacos immediately with the remaining birria sauce on the side for dipping. Enjoy your flavorful pork birria tacos with a crispy, saucy twist!
