BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos
There are times when a fat, juicy, greasy taco sounds soooooo good. Well, these BBQ pulled pork tacos are just that, fat, juicy and definitely have a greasy shell. Who doesn’t love good ol’ homemade taco shells fried in oil. Store bought shells are good, but there’s nothing like a homemade taco in a homemade shell. YUM!
Just look at these babies! They are delicious and definitely my type of taco, with a bit of a kick from the spicy cheese!
Definitely a different type of taco from your everyday taco. More of a southwestern spin with a smokey, spicy flavor topped with our favorite three alarm cheese that I tend to use on everything!
We made these a while back and just looking at the pictures again while I’m writing this post, I am SO craving these tacos! What makes a great taco is the flavor of the corn tortilla. These corn tortillas are from Trader Joes®. The best tortillas I have ever eaten and they definitely make your tacos taste better.
You know those type of tacos that are so juicy that the grease runs down your arm? Well, these aren’t quite like that but man oh man, they are so good and juicy. Tacos can be made so many ways and with any kind of meat or beans, or just about anything, so a BBQ pulled pork taco wasn’t too far out there.
With the pulled pork leftovers, you can also make enchiladas if you have more than enough pork after making these tacos. We tend to make enchiladas with just about any leftover meat. Mexican food is one of my favorite cuisines ever!
Give this recipe a try. You will be glad you did, I promise.
