  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 chipotle peppers
  • 3 garlic cloves

  • 2 bay leaves
  • To make the tacos: tortillas, cilantro, onion, avocado, limes and salsa


  1. Peel and dice half the onion
  2. Chop the garlic into small pieces
  3. In a small bowl mix together the oil, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic, onions, chipotle peppers, 2 bay leaves to make the marinade
  4. Place the meat into the crockpot. Cover one side with the half the marinade and flip over and use the remaining marinade
