  • 1.25 pounds prepared pulled pork
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon ancho powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • 10 corn tortillas or use 20 if you’d like to serve doubled tortillas
  • 1 medium white onion diced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Don Chilio® fried habanero peppers
  • Hot sauce of choice and sliced limes for serving


  1. Heat a pan to medium heat and add the olive oil.
  2. Add the shredded pork, along with your ancho powder, garlic powder, cumin and a bit of salt. You can also use your favorite taco seasoning blend. Give it a nice stir to incorporate the seasonings.
  3. Let the pork fry lightly a few minutes, until it becomes slightly crispy on the bottom. Remove it from the heat.
  4. Warm some corn tortillas either in a hot pan with a touch of oil, or directly over flames for a nice char.
  5. Serve the seasoned pulled pork over the tortillas, then top them with diced onion, cilantro, and Don Chilio® crispy fried habanero peppers, or use the fried serranos or fried jalapenos, whichever you prefer!
  6. Serve them along with your favorite hot sauce.
