What to Put in a Pulled Pork Taco

Posted: While Drinking Coffee!   |   The Cafe

With regular ground beef tacos you often will add tomatoes, cheese, and lettuce (this is the Americanized version of a taco).

For the pulled pork taco, called Carnitas in Spanish, the best ingredients are cilantro, onions, and thinly sliced avocado. The cilantro can really bring out the full pork flavor. If the pork is already seasoned, as it should be, you will not need to add much of anything else. Red onions are also a good choice.

A corn tortilla is used in the creation of the pork taco.

What to Put in a Pulled Pork Taco

Cilantro – A taco essential!
Diced Onions – pair with the cilantro.
Sliced Avocado – Thin slices, so they don’t over stuff the taco.
Queso Fresco – Mexican crumbling cheese.

The cheese you use for authentic tacos is called Queso Fresco. This is a crumbling cheese, sold in a solid round shape. It looks like bleu cheese when crumbled. Without this, your pork taco will seem bland.
A popular addition to the Carnitas is sour cream, although this is a acquired taste.

Carnitas means ‘little meats’ in Spanish, and applies to just the pork meat.
