Welcome 2019 with tacos!

Taco of the Month

A fan favorite taco is back this month at Puesto. The Pork Tinga taco is filled with braised pork shoulder, chorizo, potato, chipotle salsa, cilantro, queso fresco, avocado, and some chicharrón pieces.

The chorizo and onions are cooked, and then combined with potatoes and pork shoulder. All that goodness is then braised in the oven in a tomato-chipotle-garlic sauce.  Once cooked, its topped with queso fresco, cilantro, avocado, and chicharrón. In Spanish, tinga means stew. The tinga for this taco uses a very traditional recipe made with pork, chorizo, tomato, and chipotle chiles. The perfect wintery guisado, this dish is classic and homey. It’s packed with smoky, porky goodness and some extra crunch and texture from the chicharrón!
