    Real tacos don’t use hard shell tortillas. Please stop. Make real mexican food if you love making food.

    Confused by the picture because cheese and avocado arent in the ingredients. They arent necessary, just use lime and cilantro. Meat comes out delicious!

    I made the pork mole tacos this evening and they were wonderful, full of flavor, but not too overpowering. I used over 3 LBs of pork and cooked the meat for 75 minutes and the meal was perfect for pulling apart. I recommend using the lime and cilantro because they both bring the flavors out in the meat.
