Green Chili Breakfast Taco Recipe

breakfast taco

Here’s a nifty idea for breakfast…TACOS! Why not? Break up the routine a little and give this Breakfast Taco recipe a try from Sean and Suzanne at Pastured Kitchen. Start with a pasture raised heritage pork shoulder for a truly tasty pulled pork experience. Tacos are a traditional Mexican food that may very well date back before the Spanish conquistadores. Some historians believe that the taco originated amongst Mexican’s silver miners. While the origins remain somewhat of a mystery, it’s no surprise these tacos are delicious!
