Method

Step 1
Stir chipotles with canola oil, brown sugar, garlic, cumin, oregano and salt. Pat pork roast dry and coat with rub mixture. Add roast to a roasting pan along with onion. Whisk orange juice with 3/4 cup (175 mL) of water and 1 tbsp (15 mL) adobo sauce. Pour over roast, cover tightly with foil and roast at 275°F (150°C) for about 6 hr. or until meat is tender and will shred easily with a fork (add more water during cooking if pan is dry).
Step 2
Remove roast and let rest for 15 min. Skim off fat and simmer cooking liquid over medium-high heat, until reduced to 3/4 cup (175 mL).
Step 3
Shred pork with 2 forks and stir into cooking liquid. Place 1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded pork onto each tortilla and top with salsa verde.
