Porblana Pork Tacos

Your mouth will water over these authentic pork tacos! Traditional Mexican recipes, like this taco recipe, are easier than you think.

This what a taco recipe should taste like! I have omitted the chorizo in order to reduce the overall sodium content with much success. It's your decision to leave it in or not. The included nutritional data does reflect using the chorizo.

These are the real deal authentic Mexican pork tacos. I am talking the kind that would make the taco hunter weep with joy.

Traditional pork tacos, just like this authentic Mexican pork tacos recipe, brings the whole family together.

These authentic shredded pork tacos are just like the Mexican tacos that are slow roasted over a rotary spit, then topped with a fresh pineapple slice.

All the flavors blend together so well you do not need any additional salt or spices. I do add some fresh pineapple (just like the Mexican taco stands do) when it is available.

The first time I fixed these tacos I was teleported to a tacos stand in Mexico by just the aroma alone.
