Ingredients

  • 1 1.5 pound boneless pork shoulder roast

  • 1 tablespoon Jamaican jerk seasoning

  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 6 8 inch flour tortillas

  • 6 lettuce leaves (optional)

  • 1 medium red or green sweet pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)

  • 1 medium mango, peeled, seeded, and chopped, or 1 cup chopped pineapple

  • 1 recipe Lime Mayo (recipe below)

Lime Mayo

  • ½ cup fat-free mayonnaise

  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion

  • ¼ teaspoon finely shredded lime peel

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Directions

  1. Trim fat from meat. Sprinkle jerk seasoning evenly over pork; rub into meat with your fingers. Place meat in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with thyme. Pour water over meat in cooker.

  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.

  3. Remove meat from slow cooker; discard cooking liquid. When cool enough to handle, shred meat by pulling two forks through it in opposite directions; discard any fat. Place meat in a medium bowl. Stir lime juice into meat.

  4. If desired, line tortillas with lettuce leaves. Spoon 1/2 cup meat mixture onto the center of each tortilla. Top with about 1 tablespoon sweet pepper and 2 to 3 tablespoons mango. Top with about 2 tablespoons Lime Mayo. Fold up one side of each tortilla; fold in side edges. Roll up and serve immediately.

Lime Mayo

  1. In a small bowl stir together mayonnaise, red onion, lime peel, lime juice, and garlic. Cover and store in refrigerator until ready to serve or for up to 1 week.

For Easy Cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, remove food from your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.

Tip:

To warm tortillas, preheat oven to 350°F. Wrap tortillas tightly in foil. Bake about 10 minutes or until heated through.
