Best Pork Tacos Recipe


This is the best pork tacos recipe. The marinade takes this dish over the top.

Start the night before and let the pork soak up the marinade so it falls off the bone when it's cooked. Authentic Mexican food recipes from scratch below.

BEST PORK TACOS
(Pork Carnitas Recipe)

3 lbs pork shoulder loin (or country-style ribs)

AUTHENTIC GUACAMOLE RECIPE

My fresh authentic guacamole recipe is awesome, but I want to give you a few pointers so it turns out great every time.

Secret #1 - Buy high quality Haas avocados. When choosing your avocados choose ones that are blemish free and have a slight give when squeezed lightly.

Secret #2 - ONLY USE FRESH INGREDIENTS. Seriously, do not put in canned tomatoes, fake lemon juice, dried cilantro or garlic powder; it ruins it. Some use lemon and some use lime in their guacamole, just use what you like - but make sure it's fresh.



Homemade Guacamole Recipe from Scratch

3 fresh ripe avocados - peeled, pitted, mashed
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
3 TBS fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 fresh lime, juiced
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp fresh garlic, minced

In a large bowl, mash the avocados and add the lime juice and salt; mix well to combine. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
