Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

In a small bowl, combine the cumin, onion powder, chili powder and cayenne pepper. Rub the mixture onto the pork tenderloin making sure to cover it completely. In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over med-high heat. Add the pork tenderloin to the pan and sear, approximately 1-2 minutes on each side. Place the tenderloin in the bottom of a slow cooker coated with cooking spray. Cover with the peppers, onions and cherry pepper juice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until the meat shreds easily with a fork. Uncover and shred the meat using two forks. Stir the carnitas mixture with the juice, cover and cook for an additional 30 minutes. Serve with whatever idea you dream up. I toasted corn tortillas and added the carnitas mixture.topped it with red onion, pepper jack cheese, diced tomatoes, lettuce and avocado. Instead of sour cream I used Chobani low-fat greek yogurt.
