RELATED RECIPE: Chicken Burrito Bowls
Toss the shredded cabbage with the onion, lime juice, and sea salt. Set aside.
Warm tortillas over a gas flame to gently toast- use tongs to remove the tortilla safely. If you have an electric oven, you can grill the tortillas in a pan or heat them in the microwave. Heating them will make them pliable so we can bend them for the tacos.
Shred the pork and chop into 2″ strips. Pork loin is very stringy cooked in the slow cooker so you'll want to chop the strings into bite sized pieces for the tacos. Some of the tomatoes and other vegetables from the slow cooker pork recipe might be mixed into the taco meat – that's totally okay and it won't hurt anyone to get some extra vegetables with dinner.
Once the tortilla is heated, spread 1 TBSP of creamy guacamole across the center of the tortilla.
Add two fingers' worth of meat on top of the guacamole.
Add two fingers' of the shredded cabbage mix on top of the meat.
Add 1 TBSP of pico de gallo to top each taco.
I love these tacos with an extra dollop of creamy guacamole for dipping and a few lime wedges to squeeze on top of the tacos.
