Spicy Adobo Pork Tostadas

Directions

  1. Trim fat from roast; cut pork into chunks. Place pork in a 4- or 5-quart slow cooker. In a medium bowl, stir together tomato sauce, chicken broth, chipotle peppers, garlic, salt, cumin, coriander, and pepper; pour over pork in cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or high-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours.
  3. Remove pork from cooker. Using two forks, shred pork. Reserve half of the pork (about 3 cups) and 2 cups of the sauce; store* as directed below. Use with Chipotle Pork Tamale Casserole (see recipe below). Mix the remaining pork with 1/2 cup of the sauce. Discard any remaining sauce. Makes 4 servings + reserves.
  4. Spread refried beans over tostada shells. Top evenly with pork mixture. Divide greens, tomato, avocado, and cheese evenly among tostadas. Top each with sour cream.
