Using ground beef or chicken is great in tacos but why not give ground pork a try? These ground pork tacos are very simple to prepare and full of flavor. The flavor from this recipe comes from spices such as chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt. A little bit of lime juice is added to the mix for even more flavor. You can serve these tacos with the toppings of your choice. Some good options are guacamole, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, and tomato. Enjoy.
Ground Pork Tacos Recipe
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 2 Servings 1x
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/3 cup chopped onion
- 1 pound ground pork
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Juice of ½ lime
Pre-heat oven to 375F to warm tortillas. Cover tortillas in foil to warm them all at once.
Add olive oil, ground pork, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika to a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for about 8-10 minutes (or until cooked through), stirring often and breaking up the meat.
While the pork is cooking, prepare the apple slaw and the rest of the garnish.
Once the pork is cooked, serve tacos immediately and garnish as desired.
If it’s easier, use taco seasoning instead of the spices I have listed in the recipe.
Add on about 10 extra minutes to the total recipe time if you’re making the apple slaw at the same time as the tacos.
