Description

If you like cilantro, this is the dinner for you! Fresh, easy and oh-so delicious!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SWEET PULLED PORK:
  • 2 cups Your Favorite Salsa
  • 4 ounces, weight Canned Green Chilies
  • ¼ cups Packed Brown Sugar
  • 15 ounces, weight Black Beans, Rinsed And Drained
  • 3 pounds Pork Shoulder Roast (or Loin Roast Is Fine, Just Pricer)
  • Kosher Salt
  • FOR THE AVOCADO CREAM SAUCE:
  • 4 whole Green Onions, Sliced
  • 2 whole Avocados
  • 4 Tablespoons Lime Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • ¼ cups Snipped Cilantro
  • 4 cloves Minced Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • FOR THE TOPPINGS:
  • Stand And Stuff Taco Shells
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • 4 whole Green Onions, Sliced
  • Cherry Tomatoes, To Serve

Preparation

For the pulled pork, in the bottom of a large crock pot, mix salsa, green chilies, brown sugar and black beans. Add the pork roast (salted with Kosher salt) and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours. Take the meat out of the crockpot and shred with 2 forks. Return to the pot and mix with the sauce and beans. Leave the lid off as you continue making supper to cook away some of the juices.

To make the avocado cream sauce, slice green onions and mash the avocados. Add lime, sour cream, snipped cilantro, garlic and salt.

To serve, scoop sweet pork into a baked hard shell. Top with a dollop of avocado cream sauce and shredded lettuce and green onions. Serve with cherry tomatoes on the side.

Dig into these fresh, easy, delicious tacos! Yum!

Note: My only complaint was that if I made 2 tacos at the same time, the second taco shell got soggy while it waited. Just an FYI, not a deal breaker!
