BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos

I am finally using my crockpot the way it deserves to be used. I was so excited to try a recipe like this that I drove to three different stores just to find pork tenderloin. This is hands down one of my all time favorite dinners I've made.

1.39 lb pork tenderloin
1/2 red onion, sliced
2 tsp creole seasoning
Salt & Pepper to season tenderloin
1 cup bbq sauce (plus 1/2-1 cup extra)
1/2 cup chicken stock
8 whole wheat tortillas

Spread onion slices on bottom of crockpot and season with a little creole seasoning. Season both sides of tenderloin with creole seasoning, salt and pepper. Cut into 3 or 4 sections and place in crockpot. Pour bbq sauce and chicken stock over tenderloin. Cook on low for 4-6 hours until pork is tender enough to shred with a fork. Shred with fork and pour extra sauce in. Stir together and cook for an additional 30 minutes.

While pork is finishing, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray tortillas with cooking spray. Place on baking sheet and cook until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. As soon as they come out of the oven, fold over itself to make a taco shell. (Use a fork to do it- they will be hot!)

Once pork is done, fill shells with pork. Serve with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes if desired. Enjoy!
