8 Guerrero Riquisimas Tortillas, warmed
Chopped cilantro

For the pork:
1 Boneless pork shoulder roast (about 4 lbs.)
2 tbsp. Cumin
2 tbsp. Coriander
1 tbsp. Salt
2 tsp. Onion powder
2 tsp. Garlic powder
2 Large onions, sliced
1 Jar (16 oz.) Salsa verde

For the avocado cream:
1 Large avocado, diced
1 Jalapeño, stemmed and roughly chopped
2 tbsp. Fresh lime juice
1 tbsp. Vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. Salt

how to make it:

1. In a small bowl stir together cumin, coriander, salt, onion powder, and garlic powder. Rub mixture all over pork roast.

2. Place onions in a slow cooker and pour salsa verde over onions. Place pork in slow cooker and cover. Cook on low heat until very tender, 6-8 hours.

3. In a blender combine avocado, jalapeño, lime juice, oil, and salt. Blend until very smooth, adding up to ½ cup water to reach a smooth, pourable consistency.

4. Shred pork and toss with cooked onions and enough sauce to moisten. Serve with tortillas, avocado cream, and cilantro.
