Pork Tacos with Mango Salsa

I've made quite a few tacos in my day, but you can't beat the tender filling made in a slow cooker. These are by far the best pork tacos we've had—and we've tried plenty. Make the mango salsa from scratch if you have time! Yum. —Amber Massey, Argyle, Texas

    This was so easy to prepare and it was super good and leftovers in the freezer will be so good. Meat was very tender and the blend of the spices was just perfect
