  1. Rinse and pat dry the pork shoulder
  2. Combine the chili powder, ground cumin, salt, and pepper then sprinkle all over the pork. Gently pat the dry rub on to the meat so it sticks. Place the pork shoulder into the slow cooker
  3. Drizzle the olive oil on top and add the onion and jalepeno
  4. Squeeze the juice from two limes over the top and cook on low for 4-6 hours. The thicker the roast, the more time it will take to cook
  5. After the meat is fully cooked, shred it with two forks, removing any large chunks of fat that remain. Mix the the pulled pork with all the juices in the slow cooker. If desired, spread the pork on a baking sheet and broil for five minutes for crispy shreds of pork
  6. Serve with cilantro and diced avocados
