Quick, simple and delicious pork tacos! The perfect meal idea for your leftover carnitas.
I don’t know about you, but I love tacos! And really, who doesn’t love tacos?
I mean what is not to like about wrapping all kinds of delicious ingredients in a warm corn tortilla. The options are endless. You can make then with beef, chicken, seafood, vegetables, cheese and even eggs. Breakfast tacos anyone?
And, did I mentioned that they are the perfect dish to make with your leftovers? Well, they absolutely are!
When I have any leftover meat, I make tacos. Sometimes, I cook extra food just so that I can make tacos the next day with the leftovers. Well, the other day I made a the best roasted pork ever and had enough leftovers to make some awesome tacos de carnitas the next day. By far, one of my favorite ingredients to add to a taco is pork. I added a little cilantro dressing I had leftover from when I made my awesome Cheese Stuffed Yuca Balls and topped them with a little red onion.
It was the fastest and most delicious meal all made with leftovers! Are tacos awesome or what?
