Shredded Pork Fajita Tacos

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars

"A very quick and easy recipe. I actually stumbled across this by using leftovers. My family of 7 likes it so much that we have it a few times a month. Even the youngest child can join in the preparation by getting the toppings ready. A wonderful use of any type of leftover meat."

It worked well and was fairly easy to make. The only change I would make would be to season the pork more than I had because it turns out a bit bland.

Good way to use of leftover pulled pork. I used fresh jalapeno instead of bell pepper due to personal preference but that is the only change I made.
