Tacos. Can we all just agree that they are the greatest invention ever? You know in Shrek when Donkey says parfaits are the best thing on the whole damn planet? He lied. Tacos make the world go round. I've had Mexican food on the brain a lot lately, but I've been kind of torn on hosting a Cinco de Mayo dinner this year. We'll all be fully vaccinated by then, but I'm still treading extended family gatherings with caution. One option would be to have it outdoors, but my sister-in-law always makes fried tacos, which requires the use of my stove since they need to be eaten hot out of the pan, so I don't think that's going to work for me. But, I've also been thinking we could make these Pork Tacos from Golden Blossom Honey ahead of time and just keep them warm in a slow cooker by running an extension cord from my kitchen to my patio.
 


I made these for Jason and Allison earlier this week and they were a huge hit. If you have a good veggie dicer, there isn't much involved in the way of prep, which easily makes this an under 30 minute meal idea. I do think they will retain their flavor and moisture quite well by keeping them warm in a slow cooker, so if you need to make these ahead of time, no need to worry about them drying out or getting a rubbery texture if they can't be eaten right away. The recipe says to serve with a side of black beans, but for vegetarians, you can substitute the pork portion with black, garbanzo or pinto beans and serve with a side of rice for a great meat-free alternative.

Ingredients

1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat and cut into thin strips
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY, divided
1 cup onion, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1 cup plum tomatoes, chopped (about 3 large)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
8 (6-inch) flour tortillas
1 avocado, sliced

  1. They do look fresh and nice, but ease on the cilantro, missy :)
    I don't think I've ever had me tacos, tortillas maybe once, we're not big on Mexican food here in central Europe, but I do always have cans of beans and corn in my pantry. May Day is the biggest outdoor holiday here, but I don't know if anyone will be allowed to picnic this year. We will have about four or five non working days from Friday till Wednesday as it is also Orthodox Easter, so people will be happy, methinks.

    1. I personally cannot stand cilantro. It's so overpowering in any dish to me. All of the other Mahoney's love it though.
      There's no way in hell the US would ever offer up 5 non working days. Jason gets pissed when a holiday falls on a weekend because he'd only get a day of pay off if falls on a week day.

    2. That is your capitalism for you, deary LOL In our postsocialist country if a holiday falls on a weekend, you will get first two next working days free, no cheating. But then again, our prego ladies get a year of pregnancy leave unlike yours who have to work a few weeks after popping a baby out. If you have three kids you get three years free LOL

  2. I do love tacos and have been obsessed with fish tacos for years now. We usually forget about Cinco de Mayo, but may have to have some frozen margaritas this year.

    1. That's the one thing I just can't bring myself to make. Jason is always asking me to cook him fish tacos, but he's going to have to make them himself if he wants them that bad.
      Frozen margaritas for the win!

  3. We don't usually celebrate, but I'm all for any excuse to eat tacos and sangria! I'm not a huge fan of the regular, chopped meat tacos.. but these look delicious! My absolute favorite type of taco is a fish taco. :)

    1. Another fish taco lover. I'm sending Jason to your house to to Bijoux and y'all can have fish tacos together LOL

    2. Do you not like fish or just the combo of a fish taco? When I first heard of them 15 years ago, I thought it sounded gross, and I like fish. Once I tried one, I fell in love.

    3. I have never liked seafood. I tried really hard to like salmon, but just couldn't. I don't like cooking it in the house either because it makes the house stink, that's why he never gets it here at home. It's one of his go-to orders though when we dine out. Fish sticks though, I can do since they are more breading than fish, but I have to smother them in ketchup still. Jason, like you, thought they sounded gross at first too, but that first fish taco had him hooked!

  4. Travis is the kind of all Mexican food. He even makes some things from scratch - grinds the corn, makes the tortillas and everything. These look tasty!
