Savory Pork Tacos

Growing up in Arizona made me a lover of delicious Mexican food.  Tacos, chimichangas, burritos and enchiladas, just to name a few.  When the summer hits and the heat rises, all I really want to do is eat Mexican food.  It is kind of a funny thing.  

Thankfully, my children really enjoy most Mexican foods.  Mr. Homestead, not so much.  He says it is because he ate it too much as a kid.  (What?! Not even possible.)  But I can't complain because he'll eat it anyway.

One of my favorite meals is tacos.  We eat a LOT of tacos.  The kids prefer ground beef tacos, but I love pork tacos.  They have a little kick and a lot of flavor.  

I usually serve them with a avocado ranch or homemade guacamole.  I love to add a handful of cilantro from the garden and some pico de gallo from all those fresh veggies from the garden.  Makes for a delicious summer meal which also works in the fall.

Now this meals saving grace with Mr. Homestead are the tortillas.  He prefers corn tortillas and he loves them the way his Granny makes them.

She heats oil in a pan and heats the tortillas for maybe 5 seconds.  They aren't crispy, but nice and warm with a little flavor.  (I personally love the tortillas crispy, but that is just me.)

At the end of a long day, nothing says I love you like a warm home cooked meal with fresh herbs and veggies from the garden.
