Taco Boats Ingredients:
- 2 cups cooked pork roast shredded (I use my fingers)
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 avocado, sliced
- fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 package Ole El Paso Mini Taco Boats
In a large skillet add shredded pork roast, taco seasoning, and water. Heat on medium-high heat, frequently stirring until the pork is thoroughly heated through and the liquid has reduced.
Place seasoned pork in taco boat shell, top with a tablespoon of salsa, a tablespoon of shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream and 1 slice of avocado. Garnish with cilantro.
Repeat until you have all taco boats full. Makes about 8 Pork Taco boats.
If you prefer your pork taco boats with different toppings, you could add jalapeno peppers, fresh chopped tomatoes, black olives in addition to the avocado. Preparing a meal using leftovers helps save money and gives you a little more time, to spend with your family. Also, you could serve the pork taco boats with rice and some black beans. Unless your family isn’t a fan of black beans. I hope your family enjoys these quick and easy Pork Taco Boats. Kim’s note- if you don’t have leftover pork roast you can substitute ground beef for the pork.
