BBQ Pulled Pork Taco’s

Once you have your Shredded Pork, crunchy slaw and irresistible BBQ Sauce, it is really just a matter of building your taco!  I like to use corn tortillas, but use flour if that is what you prefer!  I like to crisp up my tortillas a little bit by spraying them with oil and warming them in a frying pan.  This makes them slightly crispy and just improves the flavor so much.
This recipe will serve 8, or 4 and leave enough for the next day!!
