Tex-Mex Pulled Pork Tacos

Pulled pork is as recognizable down south as Coronial Sanders is. It has long been a favorite on the barbecue circuit and is a perennial favorite in many a southern food stop. Among the best know for their barbecued pork are Texas and it s no secret that these recipes are as secret as any national secret could think of being. In Texas there is a huge Mexican influence in cooking also and in this recipe I marry the Mexican flavor of a taco with a crockpot pulled pork to make a Tex-Mex taco just chockfull of flavor that is sure to have them asking for seconds so you better make more.

One of the reasons I expanded away from the original site on Mexican cuisine and am in the process of adding not only a Tex-Mex category full of your favorites from north of the Rio Grande but also treats from Southern California, is there is just too much good food to pass up. It all has similar roots and as chefs migrate either way these dishes take on a whole culture of their own. For me food is about taste doesn’t matter what you call it does it taste good period end of story. It is just snobbishness to eliminate any food just because it has been adapted to from some ancient preconceived notion of what it should now be.

As I grew with this site which is a merger of my two former Mexican food sites savory and one sweet I began to realize cuisine is forever growing and evolving and if someone makes something good tasting I want to bring it to my readers. Let them decide what to call it as if that matters and let them decide hey that was dam good. It is like tasting food with a blind fold on you only have the smell and taste to judge it by not a name or a notion that hey that is not blank.

This is such a recipe pulled pork is really more of a barbecue circuit thing or southern kind of dish but heck why not serve it in a taco. Why not put some delicious feta cheese on it and then just so you think it might be Mexican a sprig of fresh cilantro to top it off close your eyes and let your taste buds decide what to call it good or not – not this side of the border or that. It is like any other form of prejudice it is just wrong to judge anything by a name. So judge our new Tex-Mex category by yum or not.
