I had some pulled pork from Costco, the type that is already pulled and frozen. I decided to use it for tacos. The only thing that would’ve made it even better would’ve been sliced avocado, but mine were all too far gone. Having ripe avocados on hand seems to be the toughest keto battle. If you have avocado suggestions, please post comment! I love Penzeys seasoning, in fact it’s one of the few places I buy my spices now. If you haven’t picked up their cinnamon yet, I highly recommend it also!
For this recipe, you’ll need the following:
- 1 pound pulled pork
- Cheddar cheese
- Parchment paper
- Sour cream
- Habenero sauce or salsa
- Penzys adobo seasoning
- Avocado (optional)
The Costco pulled porknis already cookies, so I just pull a bit out of the freezer and place it in a pot with adobo seasoning. This takes 5 minutes or so to heat.
Cut a sheet of parchment paper and 5″ x 3″ slice sharp cheddar thinly (you can use multiple slices of block is too small) Place a piece on the parchment paper and microwave for 1:15 until cheese is bubbling and hard. Remove from microwave and fold immediately. Hold for a few seconds while it sets. Remove and add new cheese and repeat until you have enough shells.
Place meat, sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa inside tortilla and serve!
