Kila's South of the Border Shredded Pork Asada

Karen Marple


Oh yeah...

It's up to you what type of tortilla to be used(flour or corn) for this shredded pork goodness. Watch out...the pork will serenade you, and tempt your tongue to surround it,until you have devoured the whole taco like a ravenous dog.

I usually use white or flour tortillas, with a good mexican farmers cheese, or a cheese made just for enchiladas is also good.

Sauce (salsa), use tomatillo salsa for this sandwich.

Now that's good....
