Ingredients

  • 6 ounces prepared pulled pork
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons or more of your favorite Taco seasoning
  • Picante sauce or red salsa
  • 4-6 ounces refried beans
  • Mexican crema - sour cream is OK, too
  • Perfect homemade guacamole
  • 2 torta buns lightly toasted - or similar buns if you can't find them
  • Sliced tomatoes chopped cilantro, lime wedges and your favorite hot sauce for serving

Instructions

  • Heat a small pan to medium heat and add olive oil. Add your prepared pork and give it a sear.
  • Add about a quarter cup of water along with the taco seasonings and stir. Reduce heat to simmer and allow the liquid to reduce.
  • Add a couple tablespoons of picante or red salsa to the pork and stir. Cook until nicely heated.
  • Add the refried beans to a small pot along with a couple more tablespoons of the picante/salsa. Heat and stir to combine.
  • Construct your tortillas by smearing refried beans on the bottom bun, then top with pulled pork. Top with tomatoes and cilantro.
  • Smear crema over the top bun and add a nice dollop of homemade guacamole over the top.
  • Top the torta, careful not to spill out the awesome stuff, and serve with extra hot sauce, lime, hot sauce and extra cilantro.
