Spicy Bourbon Baby Back Ribs

Try this easy slow cooker Spicy Bourbon Baby Back Rib recipe the next time you're in the mood for a sweet and spicy pork treat!

We use bourbon to give the sauce some kick and use it for our cooking liquid to add smokiness to the ribs without having to use artificial liquid smoke. If you like a little less spicy sauce, just omit the cayenne pepper. A little bit of it goes a long way to giving the sauce its kick! Do you have a great homemade BBQ sauce?

Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas

Pork Carnitas are a traditional Mexican taco recipe that are absolutely delicious and easy to make in your slow cooker. The key to this recipe is to brown the pulled pork shoulder after it's been in the slow cooker. This searing will brown the outside of the pork creating crispy pieces in your taco. The crispy bits are the best part of the filling. Once you shred the pork, you can put it on taco and top as you like, though it's traditional to serve with fresh chopped onions and cilantro with a splash of lime juice.
