Slow Cooker Pork Tinga with Potatoes, Avocado and Fresh Cheese is a game day favorite! Tender pork and potatoes are slow cooked with chipotles and fire roasted tomatoes and served with tortillas, ripe avocado, and fresh cheese!

In Rick Bayless’ Mexico – One Plate At A Time, Rick Bayless mentioned his Pork Tinga recipe which apparently was the best thing ever according to his daughter. I filed that recipe in my mental “must try” recipe box. While in the grocery store, I saw a gorgeous cut of pork that was on sale and thought “No time like the present” as I was craving some seriously good tacos for dinner.
I love using a slow cooker when it comes to pork. My favorite slow cooker has a stovetop safe inset which makes things so easy when it comes to browning the meat and you don’t lose any of the flavor that is on the bottom of the pan. I tend to use a bit of water or broth and deglaze the pan after browning so every bit of flavor is incorporated into the sauce. Plus, as you know, I’m a fan of any slow cooker recipe that is essentially “set it and forget it”….
