  1. So my Mrs found an awesome recipe for pork tacos! I tweaked it out a little and they turned out amazing!

    Pork tacos

    Ingredients needed:
    1/2 lb left over pulled pork (enough for 4 tacos)
    1/2 cup of Budweiser (any lager beer will do)
    1/4 cup cider vinegar
    1 tbl paprika
    1/2 tbl kosher salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/8 tsp chipotle chili powder
    1/8 tsp cayenne.pepper

    Mix all dry seasoning together in a bowl.

    Bring beer and cider vinegar to a simmer. Then add left over pulled pork. Sprinkle with seasoning mixture (I used maybe 1/4 of the seasoning mixture because the Mrs doesn't like things too spicy). Let simmer for 5 minutes.

    Warm soft taco shells in a skillet.

    Add whatever topping you like. We used pickled red onions, tomatos, cotija cheese and cilantro.

    Mexican corn

    Ingredients needed:
    4 ears of sweet corn
    3 tbl real mayo
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 cup cotija cheese (shredded fine)
    2 tbl fresh cilantro

    You can either grill or bake the corn. We choose baking in aluminum foil with 1 pat of butter. Baked for 35 minutes on 350.

    While corn is cooking. Mix mayo and garlic powder.

    When corn is fully cooked. Roll in mayo mixture. Then sprinkle with cotija cheese, cilantro and a squirt of lime.

    Gave a whole new life to the left overs! So so good! Hope you folks enjoy!

    Looks great! I like to season a whole butt with carnitas seasoning for tacos and such but the beer bath might be pretty tasty!
