Ingredients

  • 3 whole ancho chiles

  • 3 whole pasilla chiles

  • 4 cloves garlic, unpeeled

  • 2 to 3 chipotles in adobo sauce

  • 1/2 medium white onion, roughly chopped

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

  • Kosher salt

  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano, preferably Mexican

  • 3 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 4 pounds boneless pork shoulder (untrimmed), cut into chunks

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • 2 bay leaves

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • Corn tortillas, warmed, for serving

  • Assorted taco toppings, for garnish

Directions

Directions Put the ancho and pasilla chiles and the garlic in a bowl. Microwave on high until soft and pliable, 2 to 3 minutes. Stem and seed the chiles; peel the garlic. Transfer the chiles and garlic to a blender. Add the chipotles, onion, 2 tablespoons olive oil, honey, vinegar, 1 tablespoon salt and the oregano to the blender; puree until smooth. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over high heat; add the chile sauce and fry, stirring, until thick and fragrant, about 8 minutes. Pour in the broth and reduce until slightly thickened. Season the pork all over with salt and pepper and transfer to a large slow cooker. Add the bay leaves and cinnamon stick, then pour in the sauce. Cover and cook on high until the meat is tender, about 5 hours. (Or cook the meat in a large Dutch oven, covered, for 1 hour 45 minutes at 350 degrees; uncover and cook 30 more minutes.) Discard the bay leaves and cinnamon stick. Shred the pork with 2 forks; season with salt and pepper. Serve the shredded pork in the tortillas, along with toppings. (for example - salsa, cilantro, mangoes, tomatoes, scallions, radishes, lettuce, red cabbage, jicama, guacamole, sliced avocado, queo fresco)
