Recipe

This Healthy Slow Cooker Spicy Pulled Pork will quickly become one of your favorite recipes for a crowd.

Pulled pork is one of my favorite comfort foods and a dish I love to make during the summer to feed a crowd. Paired with some healthy slaw, corn on the cob, and watermelon slices - it's easily one of my favorite meals. Recently to mix things up, I have been making s spicy version of pulled pork instead using whole jalapenos. Adding them whole to the slow cooker will impart a subtle spicy flavor to the sauce without becoming overly spicy. Then if you love spice, like me, you can add some of the cooked jalapeno to your dish to kick up the heat. If you love smoke and spice, you could also use chipotle peppers in this recipe instead of the jalapenos but be careful because they pack a lot more heat.

    I made this tonight, and I nailed it, it was amazing. I altered the recipe slightly by adding Frank's Red Hot sauce to the bbq mixture as well, I like things spicy! I highly recommend this recipe. It's lush!
