Pulled pork tacos with coleslaw and salsa

mexican pulled pork tacos

Who doesn’t love a little Mexi night right? Pulled pork soft tacos, crunchy cabbage coleslaw, with a corn and tomato chili salsa.. Need I write more? So I will admit I didn’t make the pulled pork – I wanted to, but the beautiful weather got the better of me last weekend. However thank you chef Coles for providing the goods! Mexican is definitely a weakness of mine – I can’t stop after 4 tacos, it just doesn’t happen! The crunch of the fresh cabbage, mixed with the tender spiced pork and the kick of chili in the salsa is the perfect combo – my mouth was having a food orgasm. Who needs a man when there’s tacos huh?
