This recipe for Baja Pork Tacos with fresh salsa and avocado is adapted from the Chefs Plate recipe.

Chefs Plate is a Canadian meal kit delivery service that delivers ingredients and recipes to your door weekly.  Meal delivery services like Chefs Plate appeal to me because it can be a nice break from meal planning and the mission that has become shopping during this pandemic. It also makes trying healthy new recipes easy.

I was not sent a kit to recreate this recipe, I sourced the ingredients locally myself. Which is why my photos show Jalapeno peppers instead of the Poblano peppers called for.

Overall I was impressed with the depth of flavour found in these tacos from the spiced pork to the tangy tomato salsa brought together with creamy avocado, cheese and sour cream and wrapped in a warm tortilla. These aren’t your typical tacos but they didn’t take much more time or effort than our usual boxed kit tacos.

Use the recipe below to try these incredible tacos out for yourself and then explore all the other delicious meals available from Chefs Plate.

 

 

Baja Pork Tacos

Prep Time: 5 mins | Cooking time: 30 mins

Ingredients:
2 Tsp Vegetable Oil
1lb Ground Pork
12 Flour Tortillas
2 Poblano Peppers  (or Jalapeno)
1 Roma Tomato
1 Lime
1 Avocado
1/2 Cup Cheddar and Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
3/4 Cup Sour Cream

Gather all of your cooking tools and then start the recipe. Read the entire recipe card. Wash and dry all produce. Cut poblano into 1/4-inch slices. Cut tomato into 1/4-inch pieces. Halve, pit and peel avocado. Juice lime.
 
  

In a large non-stick pan, heat 2 tsp oil  over medium-high.  When the pan is hot, add pork, poblano and Chili-Cumin Spice Blend. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up pork with a spoon, for 4-5 min, until browned.  Drain any excess fat from the pan if desired.
 

While taco filling cooks, in a small bowl, mash together avocado and 2 tsp lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, stir together tomatoes and 2 tsp lime juice and 1 tsp oil. Season with salt and pepper.
 

Wrap tortillas in paper towel and microwave on high, for 1 min, until warm and flexible.

  1. I’m ready for taco night! I’ve heard of Chef’s Plate but I haven’t tried them out yet. I will be looking into their service.

  2. These look really good. I’m always looking for new ways to switch it up for taco night. Tacos are the best. I’ll be giving this recipe a try soon. I can’t wait to taste them.

  3. I bought some ground pork for burgers a couple weeks ago. It’s been hanging out in my freezer. I think I’d rather use it for these tacos!

  4. 5 stars
    We haven’t had tacos in a while so you can be sure I am going to make these delicious tacos for them soon as I have all the ingredients I need. Thanks for the recipe!
