Once pork is almost finished, prepare chipotle honey sauce and spicy coleslaw below.

For chipotle honey sauce: whisk all ingredients together to make smooth sauce. Can combine in blender or food processor if preferred.

For spicy coleslaw: whisk together dijon mustard, white sugar, red pepper flakes, cumin, yogurt, lemon juice, and salt & pepper. Toss with coleslaw mix, granny smith apples, and green onions.

When pork is finished, remove from slow cooker. (Discard liquid and onions.) Shred with a fork, and toss with chipotle honey sauce.

Serve on toasted kaiser bun with spicy coleslaw on top, and enjoy!
