Spicy Pulled Pork Tacos With Sweet Salsa

Mixing spicy and sweet is always a favorite combo of ours. Take these slow cooker pulled pork tacos. The pork gets some serious smoky heat through a healthy portion of chipotle peppers with adobo sauce. And the salsa made with cherries and peaches just complements it perfectly. It’s the type of meal that everyone will be looking forward to all day long.

Do you want it milder or spicier? You can easily control the heat by changing the amount of chipotle peppers used when cooking the pork or the amount  of jalapeño pepper in the salsa.

Spicy Black Bean Mushroom Chili

Looking for a vegetarian chili substitute to all the meat chilies out there? Spicy black bean mushroom chili is one of our all-time slow cooker favorites. The mushrooms are a perfect meat alternative, giving the chili just enough thickness. Plus, they soak in those spices making every bite totally flavorful.

The heat in this dish comes from chili powder and chipotle in adobo sauce. You can adjust those two ingredients to make a milder or hotter experience. It tastes great right away, but for optimal heat, let the chili cool at room temperature and then rest overnight in the refrigerator. It’ll thicken and the spices really come alive the next day.

Looking for a meat-based spicy chili? Take a look at our sweet and spicy chili recipe. Brown sugar and piquillo peppers star.
