Crockpot Tacos Al Pastor

Crockpot Tacos Al Pastor

While we were in Madrid we finally got tired of eating tapas after about 10 meals, so we ventured off to find Mexican food. To be honest we would eat Mexican food every day if we could. Unfortunately, where we live in Florida the Mexican food is not like what we grew up on out in Texas! Lucky for us we found multiple places in Spain that served tacos that I considered Tex-Mex food!

Here is a recipe for my favorite kind of tacos, Tacos al Pastor! I like to use a slow cooker whenever possible and this recipe is for the crockpot aka a slower cooker.
