I don’t use my slow cooker nearly enough, but when I do, I always enjoy it. To make Hot Pepper BBQ Pork Sliders, purchase a 3 pound pork shoulder, trim the fat and place it in your Crock Pot with chopped bell and jalapeno pepper. Season with 2 tablespoons of fajita seasoning.
Pour two 10 oz. cans of enchilada sauce over the seasoned meat and peppers. You can find the sauce in the international section of your grocery store. Put the lid on and let that puppy cook!
How easy is that? Eleven hours on low and this is the result…
The meat will be fork tender and oh so easy to shred. Plus, it’s fun. I find shredding pork to be a stress reliever too. HA! No pun intended. (Working out, shredding pork…get it?)
Add the meat back into the sauce.
Get a pack of those small dinner rolls from the bread aisle in your grocery store. Slice them open, use a slotted spoon to fill them with meat and top with pickles. The soft bread will soak up all that juice. Just for fun, seal with a toothpick. What you talkin’ ’bout?! Warning: You can’t eat just one. Upon the first bite, one of my guests said, “I’m in love with this sandwich!”

I love these, but I have two suggestions to try if you want! If you have a food mixer use a sturdy beater (see http://www.shopkitchenaid.com/-%5BKSMC50B%5D-400131/KSMC50B/). Once your pork is done, instead of using a fork to shred just throw it in the mixer and it will do it for you! This helps when you’re doing large quantities for social gatherings, etc. This also works for chicken if you’re in to chicken salad like me.
Also, once I assemble the slider I put them on a flat pan and throw them in the oven on broil for 2-5 minutes so you get a crisp bread. It’s delightful!
Those are great tips!! I do have a mixer, but I don’t know if I’d want to dirty it up for a job as simple as shredding meat. Plus, I kinda like the fork action. I hadn’t considered putting them in the oven to crisp though. That would add an amazing crunch. Thanks for checking out my blog and for commenting!
No problem! I’ve enjoyed reading through your blog and will continue to do so. Like I said, using the mixer is only really necessary if you’re doing very large quantities for big parties, etc. Keep up the great posts!
This looks and sounds so friggin good!!! Def gonna try!
Thank ya sista! They really are.
