Course: Main Course Cuisine: Mexican Prep Time: Cook Time: Servings:
Big Poppa’s Little Louie’s Garlic Pepper Seasoning
Minced Purple Onion
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.
