Expert Tips

  • This tasty pork filling also makes great sandwiches. Spoon the filling on top of toasted bread slices. Top with shredded lettuce and shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese.
  • To warm tortillas, wrap them in foil and heat in a 325°F oven for about 15 minutes. Or place on a microwavable paper towel, and microwave on High for 30 seconds.
