Pulled Pork Tacos & Jalapenos

352641_1524When it comes to dinner, there is no fooling around in the Collier household. Last night, we prepared some delicious pork tacos, topped with our favorite Mexican fixings. Here’s how we did it. Makes 2-3 servings.

6 warm flour tortillas
3/4 cup pulled pork, seasoned to taste
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
1/3 cup mixed Mexican cheeses
1/3 cup diced jalapenos
Salsa to taste


It’s pretty straight-forward folks. Built your tacos how you like them. Here’s how I do it:

  1. Mix the pork and jalapenos and spoon into a tortilla.
  2. Drop in some spicy salsa and a pinch of cheese.
  3. Top with shredded lettuce.
  4. Pair with a Corona light and enjoy!

I cook the meat by combining a large pork butt with a 1-cup mixture of BBQ sauce, rice vinegar, and a few drops of liquid smoke. The pork is slow cooked in a crock pot for 6 hours on high heat. I then remove the bone and fat, shredded the meat, and cook on low for another 6-8 hours. It is then ready for sandwiches, tacos, or whatever you can think of.
