Ground Pork Tacos

Sometimes you need something different than regular ground beef tacos. But not so different your toddlers realize there’s been change and boycott the meal. These hit that sweet spot of different enough but can still fly under most toddler’s radar. If you’re brave, you can throw in optional veggies to make it healthier. Warning: the veggie addition may result in a dinnertime standoff. You’ve been warned.

What you need

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 a small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pepper
  • 1 zucchini quartered and cut into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1/4 tsp salt

What to do:

Heat a tblsp of FOC in a pan, add the pork, garlic, onion, cumin and salt to the pan and cook until the pork is cooked. At this point, you’re pretty much done unless you’re doing the veggies to. If so…remove the pork mixture to a bowl and add the zucchini and bell pepper to the pan with a 1/4 tsp of salt and cook until soft. Add the pork mixture back to the pan, mix and heat through. You may need to add a splash of water.

Serve with tortillas or crunchy taco shells.
