1. Make the Chilli sauce: Add the chipotles, onion, olive oil, honey, vinegar, salt and the oregano to the blender; puree until smooth.

2. Heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over high heat and add the chilli sauce and fry, stirring, until thick and fragrant, about 8 minutes. Pour in the broth and reduce until slightly thickened.

3. Season the pork all over with salt and pepper and transfer to a large slow cooker.

4. Add the bay leaves and cinnamon stick, then pour in the sauce.

5. Cover and cook on high until the meat is tender, about 5 hours.

(Or cook the meat in a large Dutch oven, covered, for 1 hour 45 minutes at 350 degrees; uncover and cook 30 more minutes.)

6. Discard the bay leaves and cinnamon stick. Shred the pork with 2 forks; season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the shredded pork in the tortillas, along with desired toppings.

Enjoy!
