Pork Tacos with Poblano Pico and Lime Crema

Shea Goldstein


These combination of flavors in these tacos are amazing - the poblano pepper and white cheddar are perfect with the pork!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These tacos are bursting with layers of goodness! The pico packs a nice punch of flavor thanks to the poblano and jalapeno. The pork is juicy and spicy. The lime crema has a bit of tang and cools things down. A fiesta for your mouth! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
