Easy Crockpot Pork Tacos
I was talking to my sister, Amy, the other day and one of our typical topics came up: lunch. I told her about these crockpot pork tacos I made and how easy they were to make. After a bit of discussion, she asked me how this recipe was not already a blog post. You guys, this recipe is sooo ridiculously easy. Which is why I didn’t even think to post it on my blog!
And after heating up my lunch in the break room at work throughout the week and many coworkers asking me how to make the tacos as we stood in front of the microwaves, it was clear people were in need of an easy crockpot pork recipe. So here it is, in all of it’s glory! I’ve been making this crockpot pork recipe every few weeks for the last 3 or so years. It’s a staple in my house and we use the meat for everything from tacos, tostadas, and burrito bowls, to salads. But today, we’re talking about tacos. Mostly just to make this recipe seem like it has more ingredients than two. You read that right.. TWO ingredients for the pork. All you need is a can of salsa and some pork roast and you are in business! I’ll show you how to make tacos my favorite way.. but you can top this pork with whatever you want – more salsa, avocados, cheese, vegetables, sour cream – the sky is the limit!
What would you eat with this easy crockpot pork taco recipe?
Easy Crockpot Pork Tacos
For the Meat:
- 3 lbs boneless pork loin roast

- 1 avocado (diced)
- 1 lime
- Preheat your crockpot.
- Place pork loin roast in the crockpot, fat side down. Pour green salsa over the pork.

- To cook onions and bell peppers, add olive oil or avocado oil to a skillet heated over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper to the pan. Cook for 5-10 minutes, until the onions and peppers are soft and starting to brown.
- To assemble the tacos, add hot pork to corn tortillas and top with cooked onion and bell peppers, fresh tomato and avocado and a squeeze of lime juice.
My mouth is watering! Looks delish! I never thought of using pork like this in the crockpot. I’m putting together a list of easy, go-to recipes for when we start our homeschool year. This recipe is going to be #1 to try!

Thank you Liz Jo! It’s one of my favorites!
There isn’t enough time in a day but we still have to eat. Thanks for a quick recipe.
I completely agree! There’s never enough time – which is exactly why I love my crockpot! I just pop the ingredients in the crockpot in the morning on a Sunday, go about my day and then by dinner time there’s tons of pork in there for the week! 🙂
I seriously make pork like this all the time. It’s cheap, easy, and can be repurposed so many ways!
P.S. Where do you get your corn tortillas? They always look much lighter in color than mine!
Isn’t it the best thing ever? We do this recipe so much I honestly hadn’t even thought to post it! I got the el Milagro blancas brand this time around. A few more ingredients than I normally like though.
These look amazing Megan! I was just thinking about what to make next in my crockpot. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

My life has just changed dramatically! I’ve always wondered how to make a nice juicy pork loin since I tried the twice baked pork belly. I’m a sucker for slow roasting! Thanks
I LOOVVEEE slow roasting anything. It just makes it so juicy and tender!
I will definitely be taking this recipe with me to uni!
Yay! It is a perfect recipe for while you’re at school, especially since there are so many different meals you can make with the meat!
You are speaking my language! CrockPot and easy are my favorite things about a recipe =) I will be sure to pin this for later. Thank you so much for linking up with us at Welcome Home Wednesday! I hope you can visit us again next week.
I love this !! Especially cause its easy and i can take it to work or have for dinner. This is the kind of stuff I need more of in my life.. Thx !! Laci @ Sequins in the South.
Thanks Laci!! That’s exactly what I do with my pork… Bring it to work for lunch! It reheats really well! Thanks for stopping by ?
I can’t wait to give these a try! You would think that with kids back in school there would be more time for cooking, but honestly I think there is less…enter my trusty friend the Crockpot. These are going on the menu this week for sure.
Yay! Let me know how they go! Crockpots are my saving grace on busy weeks!
I have been making pork roast this way for 100 years, it is so good! When hatch chile season is happening, I add those and it is next level delicious! You take awesome photos, by the way 🙂
Me too! which is exactly why I didn’t even think to post it on here until my sister told me to! I love the hatch chile idea though.. I’m definitely going to have to try that! Thanks so much for stopping by Natalie!
