Reviews forBaja Pork Tacos
"I loved the simplicity of assembling this recipe. Flavor was good, not needing many toppings to enhance the flavor. I simply topped with lettuce and a few drops of chipotle hot sauce."
"Very easy. It tastes a lot like another taco recipe I use."
"So easy and delicious! My husband commented that it was better than a restaurant (and we have some good local Mexican restaurants!)"
"These tacos are delicious and really do taste like they are from an authentic Mexican restaurant. I have 4 boys ages 9,7,4, and 2 and they all had clean plates. I definitely will make againf"
"This was excellent!. Put in the crockpot later at night and was done in the morning. This is so simple to make and the taste is incredible. Will be making this often in the future. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!"
"Wonderful! Made for a party and everyone loved them! Put out chopped jalepenos , chopped onions and salsa for those that wanted but great just as recipe is. Will make again many times!"
"This was very good. I wasn't sure if 5 cans of green chilies was overdoing it for little kids, so I cut it back to 2. It was still yummy, but I'm sure it would be better with all of the chilies."
"Wow, these were great! I added a can of pinto beans for texture and fiber. My daughter ate her serving spooned over crushed tortilla chips and that was really good too. I will definately make these again."
"This was SO yummy! I put it together last night and put it in the fridge, then put it in the crockpot and turned it on...so easy and delicious! My family LOVED it too! The only changes I made...I just used a whole packet of taco seasoning mix and I added 1/2 an onion (because I needed to use it up!) We loved it and are happy there are leftovers! :)"
