{Spicy Dr.Pepper & Chipotle pork}

I cannot claim this recipe as one of my own
but man do we love it! 

I got the original recipe here. 
I love all of pioneer woman's recipes!
& Her pictures

In our home, we love anything spicy
especially if its, "burn your taste buds off" spicy
This pork is not that unfortunately 
but it is pretty spicy
a good kind of spicy
thanks to the chipotle peppers

Here's the recipe! 

You will need:
1 pork butt
salt & pepper
2 onions
2 cans of Dr. Pepper
1 can of Chipotle peppers
2 tablespoons borwn sugar
Cut up your onions & place them in the bottom of the dutch oven
Follwed by the pork butt, Fat side up
Open up the can of Chipotle peppers
Pour the can of peppers over the pork butt, followed by, salt, pepper, the Dr. Pepper & brown sugar
Place your dutch oven into an oven preheated to 300 degrees
The pork butt will cook for about 6 hours
I turned it twice before the 6 hours was over
After 6 hours, your pork butt will be sooooo tender! 
Pull it out piece by piece & shred it with a fork
Place the shredded pork back into the dutch oven with the dr. pepper/chipotle sauce
Let it soak up the yummy flavors
Serve your meet on a tortilla topped with cilantro, avocado & tomatoe.

This recipe is soo good! 
The pork comes out perfectly tender & flavorful
The next day, we made sandwiches with some of the left over meat & froze the rest
It makes LOTS
Its also yummy scrambled into some eggs..mmm!
You wont regret making this for your family :)

Happy monday!
