It’s summertime and that means grilling!   I’ve been on a kick where I try to grill at least 4 or 5 meals a week and by saying I grill the meal I really mean I prepare the ingredients while my husband grills the meal.   However, that is not the case with these amazing tacos.  My husband was out of town so I actually fired up the grill myself.

Before firing up the grill I needed to get my topping ingredients in order.  While I am not a fan of cole slaw I love it on top of BBQ pork or burgers.   So I whipped up a quick cole slaw using fresh cabbage and carrots.  You can whip up your own slaw or purchase your favorite slaw from the market.

Then I grabbed the all new Sabra Veggie Fusions Guacamole.   Have you seen these yet?   They come in 3 delicious flavors:  garden vegetable, Southwestern, and mango lime.  I saw them at my local Martin’s last week and picked up a few because they were on sale!   We love guacamole and this guacamole is even better because it is packed with 7 different varieties of fresh vegetables.  I paired my BBQ Pork Tacos with Sabra’s Mango Lime Veggie Fusions Guacamole to give it a little bit of sweetness with the smokiness of the BBQ and the creaminess of the slaw.

But back to my tacos.   I started by rubbing my pork chops with a barbecue dry rub.   I tossed them on the grill and cooked for them for about 5 minutes before slathering them in BBQ sauce and allowing them to cook completely.  I love when BBQ sauce is cooked onto the meat. It’s so good.

All I had to do then was assemble the tacos.  I sliced the pork thin and put it in a hard taco shell along with cheese, slaw, and guacamole.  I topped it off with a slice of lime to bring out the Mango Lime Guacamole flavors and I was finished.

These tacos were amazing! I hate to admit it but I ate 3 of them myself and had thoughts of making a 4th one but managed to restrain myself.   The tender BBQ pork paired with melted cheese, creamy slaw, and a veggie packed guacamole all in a crunchy hard taco shell is near perfection in a summertime taco.  My husband thought so too when I made him a few leftover tacos the next day.BBQ Pork Tacos with Slaw and Guacamole are a summertime favorite

  1. I’ve never had a slaw on top of anything, I’ve only had it as a side. It does sound good though!! I’d make a recipe like this for the family!
