Sometimes a recipes is so good, it needs to be praised, doted and embellished upon…the slow cooked oven pork shoulder is that recipe…and the tomatillo grilled pineapple tostadas are so INSANELY delish, that I thought I should put together another way to chow down on that delicious pork.

Enter these yummy soft corn tacos…obviously, when it comes to tacos you can mix n’ match as you wish…but this chipotle kale slaw is pretty damn good and really “makes” this dish.

This kale slaw is so yummy, I would eat with all alone! (Top it with some grilled chicken and voila.)

Whip up the dressing and you are ready to rock!
