Instructions:

  1. Chop the cilantro (include some of the stems - it’s the most flavorful part!) and set a small amount aside to garnish your tacos. Add the remaining cilantro to the slaw mix. Toss with desired amount of creamy jalapeño dressing (we like ½ cup!) and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Set aside until dinner is ready.
  2. Place a large skillet or sauté pan (non-stick is great here!) over medium-high heat. Spread the braised pork over the pan and sprinkle with about 1-2 Tbsp of sazón español spice mix. Cook until crispy, only tossing occasionally. It’s possible this might need to be done in batches as to not overcrowd the pan.
  3. Heat cumin pinto beans in a saucepan or the microwave with the lid askew. Heat tortillas in the microwave wrapped in a dampened paper towel until steamy.
  4. Layer tacos as desired with pickled onions, queso fresco and cilantro, and serve alongside the lime wedges, beans, and slaw!
