Wow, I thought these were so delicious. Definitely a nice twist on my typical tacos. The sauce has a bit of cocoa in them so they have a slight mole flavor.
The original recipe called for pork shoulder, but I used thick boneless pork chops, because that is what I had in the freezer. Served on corn tortilla with sour cream (soy version for me & Maria), avocado & lettuce. The kids also had cheese (substitute). I then went back for seconds, but had it just with lettuce, black beans, corn and avocado with some tortilla chips. Both was good. I really loved the flavor…
