Slow Cooker Chipotle Pork with Mango Slaw


Oh my gosh this is one delicious dinner. I know, I know, I say that about all the food I put up here. But just know I make plenty of meals that aren’t blog worthy. So when you do a get a dinner recipe shared here, you must KNOW that I find it worthwhile!
As if the shredded pork wasn’t delicious enough on it’s own, combined with the corn muffins and broccoli mango slaw it makes a very stunning and tasty dinner! A dinner that is staying in our rotation!
