Tonight, let’s enjoy avocado in this crowd-pleasing tacos recipe: we’re sautéing some ground pork “al pastor” style and loading it into soft tortillas with a bounty of toppings. Let’s start with creamy, rich Mexican avocado of course, which adds a silky texture we can’t get enough of, then pile on a slaw bursting with pineapple, grated cabbage, onion and fresh cilantro—plus a sprinkling of Cotija cheese. It’s official: it’s a fiesta!

Cook the pork
Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a large pan, heat a generous drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the ground pork* and season with ⅔ of the spice blend and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate.

Warm the tortillas
While the pork cooks, stack and tightly wrap the tortillas in a large piece of foil. Carefully place directly onto the oven rack and warm, 6 to 8 minutes, until heated through. Keep wrapped until ready to serve.

Mise en place
While the pork continues to cook, juice the lime. Halve the avocado and discard the pit. Using a spoon, scoop out the avocado flesh onto a cutting board. Cut into thin slices and season with a pinch of the spice blend, ½ tbsp lime juice (double for 4 portions) and S&P to taste.

Make the slaw
Roughly chop the leaves and stems of the cilantro. In a bowl, combine the onions, cabbage, pineapple, cilantro and as much of the remaining lime juice as you’d like. Drizzle with oil and toss to thoroughly combine; season with S&P to taste.

Finish & serve
Divide the warmed tortillas between your plates. Top each with an equal portion of the sour cream; season with the remaining spice blend. Top each tortilla with some seasoned avocado slices, cooked pork and a spoonful of slaw. Garnish with the Cotija cheese. Serve any remaining slaw on the side. Bon appétit!

*Health Canada recommends cooking ground pork to a minimum internal temperature of 71°C.
