6 tacos


  • 1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced

  • 1 Roma tomato, seeded and finely chopped

  • 1 ripe kiwi, diced

  • 1 lime, quartered, divided

  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, divided

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 4 tablespoons sour cream

  • olive oil

  • 1 poblano pepper - cored, seeded, and finely chopped

  • 10 ounces ground pork

  • 1 tablespoon Mexican seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 6 flour tortillas


  1. Mince a few slices of onion to get 1 tablespoon. Add minced onion, tomato, kiwi, juice from 2 lime wedges, 3/4 of the cilantro, salt, and pepper to a small bowl. Mix into a salsa.

  2. Juice 1/4 of the lime into another small bowl; mix in sour cream to make the crema.

  3. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sliced onion and poblano pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until softened and lightly charred, 3 to 4 minutes. Add pork and Mexican seasoning. Cook until pork is browned throughout, 4 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add chicken stock, tomato paste, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until everything is coated, 1 to 2 minutes.

  4. Wrap tortillas in a damp cloth and microwave for 30 seconds. Divide tortillas over plates; spread lime crema on top. Top tortillas with pork mixture and salsa. Garnish with remaining cilantro.
