Pulled pork is such a crowd pleaser and by adding these chipotle spiced onions you are really taking it to another level. You can easily prepare a meal like this for plenty of people, or a smaller family dinner…just freeze your leftover shredded pork in freezer bags for future meals. The tender meat works really well in quesadillas or tacos.

1 cup water

Place pork roast in the slow cooker; add water, sliced onion, salt and pepper and garlic cloves. Cover and cook on low for about 9 to 11 hours, or until very tender. Drain all juices off, discard any fat and bone. Shred or chop pork. Continue cooking on high for about 1 hour.
Prepare onion topping by adding 1-2 tablespoons of oil in non stick skillet over medium high heat. Add onions to pan, salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook for approximately 10-15 minutes, or until soft. Add 2 teaspoons of chipotle chili powder and a couple of dashes of Tabasco Chipotle sauce to onions.
