|Slow Cooker Pulled Pork and Avocado Wraps|
Pulled pork is high on the list of favorites with the men in my family so I like to make it for them a few times during the year. The pork shoulder butts were on sale at my local grocery store last week making this a good time to put pulled pork on the menu. I've written about making pulled pork in a slow cooker before using Dr. Pepper and Guinness beer as the braising liquids. I followed much the same cooking process this time just substituting Newcastle Brown Ale and adding a chopped jalapeno in the slow cooker. I also made a batch of my chipotle barbecue sauce to add lots of flavor to the pork once it was shredded. I recommend you make this sauce. It's the best!
While at the grocery store buying the pulled pork ingredients I spied a brand of wraps I hadn't noticed before. With only 90 calories 13 grams of fiber each, they immediately got me to thinking about how I could serve the pulled pork in a healthier version than is traditional. I decided to start with healthier wraps. There are many healthier versions of tortillas and wraps readily available and no one will know the difference once the wraps are assembled. Another healthy alternative is using lettuce leaves as the wrap.

- one jalapeno pepper, chopped
- Chipotle Barbecue Sauce, or your favorite brand

- 1/2 small head of red cabbage, shredded
- black olives, sliced or chopped

Place the wraps on a plate and spread with a thin layer of barbecue sauce. Slice the avocado and squeeze the juice of a half of a lime over the slices to keep them from turning brown and to add a little zippy flavor.
