    Instructions
    1. Mix all of the Mixed Spices together in a resealable container. Set aside.
    2. Add pork to large freezer bag along with marinade ingredients. Marinate 12-24 hours.
    3. Drain marinade and add pork to slow cooker along with Phase 1 Slow Cooker Ingredients: Cook on low 6-8 hours or until tender enough to shred.
    4. Shred pork in the slow cooker with 2 forks (it should just fall apart at this point) and then transfer all of the slow cooker contents to a strainer to drain off excess liquid.
    5. Return pork to slow cooker and add Phase 2 Ingredients. (You can add more enchilada sauce if you want the pork “saucier”). Stir in ingredients and cook another 15-30 minutes or until heated through. Taste and add additional salt (I usually add about 1/2 teaspoon) and hot sauce to taste.
    6. Serve in tacos, enchiladas, burrito bowls, etc. with Tomatillo Avocado Ranch Dressing.
