Ingredients

Instructions

  • Wash the green leaf lettuce and cut the base. Pat dry each leaf. 
  • Cut tomatoes into cubes or thin slices. Chop the onions and cut the cucumber into cubes.
  • Prepare the Pork Carnitas by frying it in hot oil. Only fry one side to get some parts crispy and the other tender and juicy.
  • If not using freshly made tortillas, warm the tortillas by wrapping them in slightly damp paper towels and heating them in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute. Alternatively, warm each tortilla in a skillet over high heat for a few seconds each side.
  • Assemble the tacos starting with the tortilla followed by the lettuce, pulled pork, tomatoes, onions, and cucumber. 

Notes

If you want it extra spicy, sprinkle the tacos with some hot chili sauce.
