Pork Tacos

Aren’t you all curious to know how I’ve been eating my pink pickled onions?

I’ve added them to salads and sandwiches so far but my favorite has been:

pork tacos!

I seasoned some ground pork with cumin, paprika, coriander, chili powder, and jalapeno. I then made some guacamole and red cabbage slaw. Topped the whole thing with a couple of strands of pickled onion.

Seriously, the pickled onion takes ordinary tacos to a whole different level.
