Mexican Pork Recipes

Time to talk about everything Pork! With so many irresistible cuts – pork belly, pulled pork, and chorizo to name a few – we have enjoyed being back in the kitchen cooking up some new and delicious Mexican Pork Recipes. From melt-in-your-mouth tender, slow-cooked pulled pork to quick and easy chorizo quesadillas, we have a pork recipe for just about every occasion!

Pork Belly Tacos

1. Twice Cooked Sticky Pork Belly

First on our list of Mexican Pork Recipes is one of our most popular recipes and one amazing pork belly recipe to add to the mix! It might not be authentically Mexican, and we have suggested serving it with Thai Jasmine Rice; however, our Chipotle Honey glazed over the pork belly is so extremely delicious and was so popular when we tried it that we had to tell you about it. Cooked once first in the oven until beautifully tender, and then cooked again in a wok to crisp it up!

2. Mexican Pork Belly Tacos

We challenged our chef, Susy, to create the most irresistible and moreish Mexican pork tacos she could imagine, and she came up with this recipe for Mexican Pork Belly Tacos! Pork belly is slowly cooked in beer and spices until tender, then coated it in a delicious and spicy Mexican pork marinade (using our Chipotle Paste). It then gets crisped up in a very hot pan, chopped up into carnitas-like chunks ready to be enjoyed with warm Soft Taco Wraps. How does that sound?

3. Pork In Salsa Verde Tacos

For this Mexican pork tacos recipe, we wrapped up a delicious Mexican stew known as “Guisado” or “Guiso” in Soft Taco Wraps. There isn’t just one recipe for guisados, but they mainly consist of a protein (chicken or beef most commonly) cooked slowly in a pot and combined with a flavoursome sauce and vegetables making it the perfect one-pot meal. Our guisado is made using pork shoulder cooked with fried onions, potatoes and seasoned with our  Garlic & Guajillo Fajita and Taco Mix, then covered and simmered in our delicious Tomatillo Enchilada Sauce, finished with freshly chopped coriander and served with Soft Taco Wraps.

4. Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Next on our list of Mexican Pork Recipes, is Slow Cooker Pulled Pork….now there’s an idea! It takes time though, so great on a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning. It’s traditionally cooked in the oven or slow cooker on a low heat for several hours. This allows the fat to dissolve making the Mexican pork so tender it falls apart easily when shredded. Our Chipotle Paste is the ingredient needed, and you can go classic and use soft brioche rolls to serve the meat in, or go Mexican and use Soft Taco Wraps.

5. Pulled Pork Tacos

These Pulled Pork Tacos are a really simple way to use up leftover pulled pork using our deliciously smoky Chipotle Paste. However, if you have decided to make the Mexican pulled pork from scratch, we recommend making a big batch the day before, perhaps freeze some, and then enjoy it throughout the week in tacos! This delicious Mexican pork tacos recipe also comes with a quick red cabbage pickle.

6. Mexican Pulled Pork Sandwich

Would you just take a look at that! A Mexican Pulled Pork Sandwich.. yum. What a great lunch idea, and good way to use up the leftover pulled pork. Our Chipotle Mayo really takes this sandwich to the next level, and it’s finished off with a quick red cabbage pickle, some fresh green salad leaves and a squeeze of lime. Mexican pork recipes perfection!

7. Mexican Pulled Pork Burrito Bowl

This Pulled Pork Burrito Bowl has everything you love about burritos, but in a bowl. It is a great way to use up leftover pulled pork but also works really well with chicken. It’s also a great way for those on a low carb diet to enjoy all of that burrito goodness.

8. Brussel Sprout & Chorizo Quesadilla 

With crispy chorizo this is one irresistible quesadilla and another favourite of our Mexican Pork Recipe! For this quesadilla recipe we start by frying chorizo with onions, until the chorizo is crispy and the onions have softened. This is when we add the sliced brussel sprouts and season them with Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco MixTomatillo Salsa and finish them with a bit of butter and freshly chopped coriander . Tucked into Soft Taco Wraps, they are warmed them over a hot pan until deliciously toasted. Perfect served as a Mexican snack or quick lunch.

9. Chorizo Nachos

Finally, on our list of Mexican Pork Recipes, we have Chorizo Nachos. Nothing says weekend treat quite like a plate of crispy chorizo nachos! Packed full of flavour and layered with textures, these are delicious. We fried chorizo with onion and garlic, and smoky Chipotle Paste. Then added chopped tomatoes and simmered the mixture on a low heat until the tomatoes softened. This transforms it into a delicious chipotle-chorizo like sauce.

10. Pulled Pork Chimichanga

Have you heard of Chimichanga’s before? They are basically deep-fried burritos. A chimichanga is made with a flour tortilla which is fried until the outside is crispy. They’re often served with sour cream and cheese, or even salsa or guacamole. These pulled pork chimichanga’s are simply divine!
