Shredded Pork Tacos {with Chimichurri Sauce}.

I absolutely loved these tacos.  Simple and delicious. 

Flame roasted corn tortillas, shredded pork, sliced avocado, diced red onion, crumbled queso fresco cheese, and a spoonful or two of this fabulous Chimichurri Sauce.

I was completely happy using a pair of tongs and flame roasting the corn tortillas over my gas stove burner.  Not that I don’t love a deep fried tortilla, but this Healthy Choice gave me all I needed. 

Also, we actually cooked this Boston Butt Roast in our crock pot and you know what that means, melt in your mouth goodness. 

I think for Carnitas the pulled pork needs a ‘crisping’ step, which likely calls for a dip in hot oil.  I resisted the urge :)

So instead of Carnitas, we have Shredded Pork Tacos {with Chimichurri Sauce}

Full of flavor.  And I mean full. 

The pork was seasoned wonderfully and the Chimichurri Sauce is a flavor explosion.
