Coconut & Lime Pork Tacos

Super easy recipe for taco Tuesdays...

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground pork

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 1 large garlic clove, minced

  • Salt & pepper to taste

  • 1½ tsp ground cumin

  • 1 ½ tsp chili powder

  • 1 tsp oregano

  • 1 tsp Spanish smoked paprika

  • Cayenne pepper, to taste

  • ⅔ cups full fat coconut milk

  • 1-2 T freshly squeezed lime juice, from 1 lime

  • 15oz can of cooked black beans, rinsed & drained

  • Serve on organic corn tortillas, along with 1-2 avocados (roughly chopped), cilantro, and your favorite salsa

Directions:

  • In a large skillet, heat 1 T olive oil over medium heat. Add the pork and brown it all over. Then remove the pork from the pan and set-aside as you cook the onion, garlic & spices.

  • Add a little more olive oil if necessary, and add the onion, garlic, and a large pinch of salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until they’ve softened, about 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Once the onion is translucent, then add the cumin, paprika, oregano, and cayenne. Let sizzle in the pan until they’re toasted and fragrant, about 1 minute, then stir well until the onions and garlic are evenly coated with the spices.

  • Add the browned pork back to the pan. Remove any excess fat from the pan.

  • Then, add the coconut milk; simmer for about 5 minutes until thickened, then stir in the black beans, and 1-2 tablespoon lime juice and cook for an additional minute or two.

  • Taste and add more lime juice if needed. Adjust the seasoning to taste. You can serve right away, or cover the pan and let the pork gently simmer over low heat.

  • Using a slotted spoon, divide the ground pork equally among lightly warmed corn tortillas.

  • Serve with lots of avocado and other toppings of your choice (e.g., cilantro and your favorite salsa etc.).

  • Enjoy!
