Sweet Pork Tacos

This recipe came from Ashlee and was originally called Café Rio Pork. While it is delicious (perhaps better than cafe rio), it doesn't taste exactly the same. But it's super yummy and easy as can be. Throw it all in the crock pot and enjoy a few hours later!

1 ½ cans Coca-cola Classic – do not use substitutes
1 cup sugar
1 (7 oz) can Chipotle chiles in ADOBO sauce
1 heaping tsp dry ground mustard
1 heaping tsp cumin
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 3-5 pound pork loin or roast

Remove the chilies from the can of adobo sauce. (If you like super-spicy foods, leave one or two chilies in. If you want to clean the system, go ahead and use them all…) Add all the ingredients (except the pork, of course) in a blender. Rinse can of adobo sauce with coca-cola to get all the sauce out. Blend until well mixed. Place pork in crock pot and pour sauce over it. Cook on low for 7-9 hours or until pork pulls apart with a fork. Serve in tortillas with grated cheese, avocado, sour cream, salsa, etc.
