Cafe Rio Pork

Like any good pork dish, the name of the game is low and slow.

Cafe Rio Pork
5-6 lb pork roast
20 oz Dr Pepper or Coca-Cola (do not use diet soda)
1 c brown sugar
3/4 c sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
7 oz can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
6-8 oz jar red taco sauce
1 t dry mustard
1 t cumin
1/4 t cayenne pepper

1. Place roast in slow cooker, cover about halfway with water, and cook on low for 12 hours, or overnight; drain pork.
2. Mix remaining ingredients until the sugar is dissolved; pour over roast and cook on low for 4 hours.
3. Shred pork, add back into sauce, and cook for another 2 hours.
*You can just use the sauce, or you can use the sauce and up to all of the chiles if you would like some more heat (I throw the whole can in).
