Forget the chopping, dicing, and simmering, these tacos are made with simple ingredients and can be created in two minutes flat. And if that doesn’t sell you on making this recipe, maybe the idea that this meat can be frozen and used to make other healthy minute meals will. This recipe is a spin-off of my mom’s pork tacos, so keep in mind it can be made with either chicken or pork depending on your preference! The pork provides a bit more flavor, while the chicken keeps more buck in the bank.
