Big Poppa’s Carnitas Tacos

Course: Main Course   Cuisine: Mexican   Prep Time:    Cook Time:    Servings:



Shredded Cabbage

Big Poppa’s Little Louie’s Garlic Pepper Seasoning

Sliced Limes

Minced Purple Onion

Queso Fresco

Chopped Avocados

Mexican Salsa

Corn Tortillas

Sour Cream (Mexican Crema preferred)


Prepare the Cabbage:

Start by seasoning your shredded cabbage with a generous pinch of Big Poppa’s Little Louie’s Garlic Pepper Seasoning. Don’t forget to squeeze some fresh lime juice over the cabbage to add a zesty kick. Toss it all together until well coated. Set aside.

Warm the Tortillas:

Heat up your corn tortillas. You can do this in a skillet, on a griddle, or even in the microwave. Warming them will make them pliable and enhance their flavor.

Assemble the Tacos:

Now, the fun part! Assemble your tacos one by one:

Lay a warm corn tortilla flat on a clean surface.

Add a generous portion of tender carnitas to the center of the tortilla.

Next, pile on the seasoned shredded cabbage for a refreshing crunch.

Sprinkle some minced purple onion for a delightful sharpness.

Crumble queso fresco over the top for a creamy, tangy element.

Spoon on some zesty Mexican salsa for a burst of flavor.

Finish it off with a few chunks of creamy chopped avocados.

If you love creaminess, drizzle a bit of sour cream (Mexican Crema is the ultimate choice) over the filling.
