Quick Pork Tacos

We had these for dinner tonight and they were one of those throw together meals that turn out fantastic so I had to post it so I can make it in the future. They had so much flavor-I had 5 of them :) I cooked a pork roast in the crockpot a few days ago with some water and beef bouillon until it was nice and tender. Then I (well the hubs did this part) put it in some freezer bags. So we used probably 2 cups shredded pork-I think chicken would be really yummy as well- and added 1/2 c. green salsa. and stirred together/heated up in a frying pan. Heat some corn tortillas-11 or 12- one at a time and melt some mozzarella (or Monterey Jack) in the center. Add some meat down the center and top with chopped avocado, sour cream, and lime juice. Roll up and enjoy! I also thought it would be yummy to make a creamy green chili sauce to put over the top and cook like enchiladas. I may try that when it is colder, but just as the tacos makes a great semi-light meal with some fruit.

So we had this for dinner tonight!! I had a pork roast that i cooked up the other day but didn't shred or anything. So I threw it back in the crockpot for 2 hours with the green salsa and squeezed in some lime juice!! It turned out fabulous!! Add some cilantro to your taco and squeeze some more lime juice over it and it was perfect!! we also had it with cilantro lime rice and then some fresh made salsa and chips!! Lets just say I cant wait till lunch tomorrow for leftovers. I might have to have a midnight taco!!

We do something similar with pork roasts all the time, and we love it! We use the meat on tacos or salads, and another family favorite is to do nachos. We throw some tortilla chips on a cookie sheet or in metal pie plates, top with the pork, some drained black beans, and shredded cheese and pop it under the broiler until it's melted and slightly bubbly. Take them out, top with salsa, sour cream, guacamole and lots of cilantro...YUM!!! Sooooo Goooood! :)
