  • 6-8 medium flour tortillas
  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste



  • Pre-heat oven to 375F to warm tortillas. Cover tortillas in foil to warm them all at once. 
  • Add olive oil, ground pork, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika to a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for about 8-10 minutes (or until cooked through), stirring often, and breaking up the meat.
  • While the pork is cooking, prepare the apple slaw and the rest of the garnish.
  • Once the pork is cooked, serve tacos immediately and garnish as desired.


  • If it's easier, use taco seasoning instead of the spices I have listed in the recipe.
  • Add on about 10 extra minutes to the total recipe time if you're making the apple slaw at the same time as the tacos. 
  • Nutritional information is provided as a courtesy only and should be construed as an estimate rather than a guarantee. Ingredients can vary and Salt & Lavender makes no guarantees to the accuracy of this information. Nutritional info is for 6 tacos and doesn't include toppings.
