The healthy tacos

So, in case you couldn’t tell by the name of this blog, we kinda love tacos over here at The Healthy Taco. We are pretty strict about our Taco Tuesday menu. That’s mostly because my autistic daughter counts on having them, but also because tacos are the best!

This week I made pork tacos. Delicious, healthy pork tacos. 

I started by slow cooking a pork roast. I put it in my enameled Dutch oven with a variety of spices, and some vegetable broth. I cooked it at 225 for about 3 hours. Then I shredded it, and mixed it back into the juices. I set the Dutch oven on the stove and simmered the meat for an additional 20 minutes while I prepared the rest of the meal. 

The result, was tender well seasoned pork. 

I also heated the corn tortillas in a little coconut oil, and fried up a few for chips. I paired that with a simple pico de gallo, and there you have it. Taco deliciousness.  But don’t take my word for it! Try it out and Tempe what you think, or what you did differently.
