Pork Tacos with Simply Perfect Guacamole

I'm sure you have shredded pork left over from those delicious Cuban sandwiches you made, right?! Hooray! That means an even easier meal the next day... pork tacos. The Cuban pork is already delicious, but when you add guacamole and cilantro... Mmmmmm.

My husband was born and raised in southern California. So (of course) he loves anything with avocado. He also happens to be a rather amazing chef. Here's his simply perfect recipe for guacamole. It's my favorite!

Simply Perfect Guacamole
5 ripe avocados
1/2 of a small yellow onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 jalapenos, seeded and finely chopped
juice of 1 lime (it helps to keep the avocados from turning brown)
about 2 teaspoons of salt plus more to taste

Cut each avocado in half and remove the pit by tapping it lightly with a sharp knife until the knife sticks in the pit. Twist gently and pull out the pit and discard. Use a spoon to scoop out the green flesh from the skin and add it to a medium bowl. Add the onion, jalapeno, lime juice and salt. Stir gently to combine being careful to leave some large chunks of avocado. Taste and add additional salt if needed.

Warm some flour or corn tortillas. Top with shredded pork, a heaping tablespoon of guacamole, fresh cilantro, and chopped red onion. Enjoy!
