Combine tomato sauce, raisins, chili powder, chipotle and garlic in slow cooker. Slice roast crosswise into 4 equal pieces and season generously with salt and pepper.

Nestle roast into a slow cooker, cover, and cook until roast is tender, 9 to 10 hours on low or 6 to 7 hours on high.

Transfer roast to bowl and let cool slightly. Shred into bite-sized pieces, discarding excess fat. Using a large spoon, skim excess fat from surface of mole sauce.

Transfer sauce to blender and process until smooth, about 1 minute. Stir in cilantro and lime juice, season with salt and pepper to taste, and adjust consistency with hot water as needed. Stir about 2 cups of sauce in shredded pork.

Serve with warm tortillas, remaining sauce and any toppings like guacamole, salsa, sour cream or onions.

Topping Suggestions: Avocado, guacamole, salsa, onions, radish, lime wedges, cheese, or sour cream.
