  • 30 Minutes Total Time
  • 15 Minutes Prep Time
  • 12 Servings
  • 7 Ingredients


  • 1 package (12 count) Old El Paso™ Taco Boats™ mini soft flour tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
  • 1 container (1 lb) refrigerated pulled pork with sauce
  • 1 stick (1 oz) mozzarella string cheese
  • 1 package (14 oz) coleslaw mix
  • 1 cup coleslaw dressing (from 15-oz jar)


Step 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with foil or cooking parchment paper. Brush outsides of boats with melted butter.

Step 2 Divide shredded mozzarella cheese evenly among boats. Spoon pork mixture evenly among boats; smooth tops.

Step 3 Cut string cheese into 12 long strands. Cut each strand in half, then cut half of the pieces in thirds. Top each pork-filled taco boat with three small pieces of cheese, then place one long piece of cheese perpendicular to the three pieces to create laces. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until filling is hot and cheese is melted.

Step 4 Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix coleslaw mix and dressing; toss to coat. Serve slaw with warm football boats.

Expert Tips

Want a little smoky flavor? Use a smoked mozzarella cheese stick in place of the regular cheese stick.
Coleslaw mix is available in many different package sizes. If your package is less than 14 oz, add just enough coleslaw dressing to coat the coleslaw so it won’t become soggy.
