Stir together chipotle chili, vinegar, cinnamon, ancho chili powder, cumin, salt and garlic powder; rub over pork. Arrange slices of onion and pineapple in bottom of slow cooker; place pork over top. Cover and cook on low until pork is tender, about 8 hours.
Transfer pork to large bowl; let cool slightly.
Meanwhile, strain liquid from slow cooker through fine-mesh sieve into heatproof bowl; discard solids. Skim off fat. Return 1 cup of the liquid to slow cooker; discard remaining liquid. Whisk cornstarch with 1 tsp water; whisk into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.
Using 2 forks, break pork into bite-size pieces; stir into thickened liquid to coat. Just before serving, stir in diced pineapple. (Fruit acids will turn pork mushy if added ahead of time.) Top tortillas with pork mixture, avocados, radishes, red onion, sour cream and cilantro.
This diner classic is ideal for those nights when you don't know what to eat and don't really feel like cooking. It cooks in minutes and is incredibly versatile—the sky's the limit when it comes to the fillings you can add.
