PULLED PORK TAQUITOS WITH AVOCADO SALSA
3/4 lb. pulled pork
6 tomatillos, husked
1/2 white onion
1 jalapeño, stem removed
1/2 cup of water
handful of cilantro
12-15 corn tortillas
2 avocados, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying
crema, shredded iceberg lettuce, and cilantro for serving
Sauce the tomatillos, white onion, and jalapeño in a pan over medium heat until browned. Then add half a cup of water to the pan and cover, cooking until the tomatillos are soft.
Pour all of the ingredients from the pan into a blender with a large pinch of salt and a handful of cilantro and blend until smooth.
Heat the pulled pork in a pan over medium low heat. Then add half of the salsa mixture to the pan, mix, and continue to cook until heated thoroughly.
Fill the bottom of a pan with out a half inch of frying oil and turn the heat to medium.
Once the oil is hot, roll the pulled pork mixture in tortillas and place the open side down in the oil with a spatula.
Press down on the taquitos with the spatula to ensure that the taquitos stay in place and become sealed.
Flip and fry until golden brown on all sides, then set aside on a cooling rack or a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with remaining pork and tortillas.
In a bowl, mix the remaining salsa with the avocado, garlic, and a large pinch of salt.
Place the taquitos over a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce and top with the avocado salsa, crema, cilantro, and lime.
Serve and enjoy!
