Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time20 mins
Servings: 4 tacos


Avocado Cream Sauce

  • 1 large avocado pitted and peeled
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • juice from one lime
  • 2 cloves of garlic peeled
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Crispy Pork Tacos

  • 1 cup shredded pork http://cookingandbeer.com/2017/04/loaded-pork-carnitas-street-fries/, other leftover meat may be used (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup fresh, canned, or frozen corn warmed if needed
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cotija cheese plus extra for garnish
  • 4 taco-sized flour tortillas
  • neutral cooking oil like canola or vegetable


  • Combine all ingredients for the avocado cream sauce in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth, and set aside.
  • On one half of each of the tortillas, divide the pork, corn, and cheese evenly among all four tortillas. Fold in half.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet set over medium to medium-high heat. Be sure that the oil just completely covers the pan, but don't fill too high. Once hot, add the tacos (working in batches if needed). Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until brown.
  • Serve immediately with avocado cream sauce, crumbled cotija cheese, and additional cilantro if desired. Enjoy!
