This Low Carb Spicy Pulled Pork is made in the slow cooker and has the perfect blend of spicy and sweet flavors for under 250 calories per serving.

With lots of football games on the horizon, I know the husband will request pulled pork for at least one game. The only problem is that I am trying to cut back on carbs this month to kick start some holiday weight gain. Luckily with low sugar and no sugar added barbecue sauces, it's easy to make a lower carb version that still tastes incredible. Since we love spice, I kick it up with some fresh jalapenos and a quick spice rub to really pack in the flavor.
