pulled-pork-mole-tacos-9

This might be one of the tastiest tacos ever!  They were so good I can’t wait to make them again. This Mole sauce has so many flavors to awaken the taste buds including dried chiles, spices and dark chocolate.  The pulled pork was the star of this taco so there was no need for a lot of toppings.  A fresh Pico salsa with crumbled Queso Fresco is all you need.

As promised here’s another idea for any leftover Mayan pork.  While Josh enjoyed a Mayan pork sandwich from the food truck, I had a platter of Loaded Fries.  Oh boy were they good!  The fries were crispy and loaded with cheese sauce, fresh pico, cilantro lime cream and lots of Mayan pulled pork.  It was way too much for this girl to eat but I gave it my best shot!

Mayan-Pork-Tacos-17

Recently I had my first food truck experience.  Here in KC there is an old warehouse district called the West Bottoms that’s been converted into a huge flea market that happens every first Friday/weekend of the month.  If you love all things vintage then this is the place to be.  They have anything and everything you can think of displayed in these beautiful old warehouses. People spend hours perusing through the old buildings looking for treasure.  There aren’t many places to eat down there except for a line of food trucks that are parked along the streets.  We walked the streets looking at all the food trucks each with their own artistic style and various menus, it was hard to choose.  We decided on “American Fusion” which offered a small menu but caught our attention.  Josh had their “Mayan Pork” sandwich aka Cochinita Pibil, a slow roasted Mexican pork from the Yucatan peninsula of Mayan origin.  First of all, it practically melts in your mouth, it was that tender.  And the flavor, it was amazing with a hint of smoky sweet flavors.  I was inspired!!  After researching everything I could find on how to make this delicious pulled pork I have finally created my own version.  First thing on the menu Mayan Pork Tacos . . . . with more to come!
