This recipe is designed for your slow cooker and takes just minutes to prepare! You can put it together in the morning then set your slow cooker to low and you will have a meal ready when you get home from work. Use Plantain Tortillas, Homemade Brown Rice Tortillas, or fresh collard greens for your taco shells. I initially created this recipe using pure, unsweetened pomegranate juice, but now prefer to use unsweetened 100% tart cherry juice. I like the bolder, tarter flavors that the cherry juice provides. You just need to make sure you are buying 100% tart cherry juice and not a mix of cherry and apple juices. Although my original recipe (which can be found in our Elimination Diet book) uses garlic and onions, I don't even add them anymore. The end result is just as good!
