I made an oven roasted lime and cilantro pork shoulder (find recipe here) beforehand and I had plenty of left overs. I am a huge fan of delicious tacos and Mexican food, so I decided to incorporate the shredded pork into these fabulous, flavorful tacos. It can be “Taco Tuesday” any day of the week. How great is that?!?
