Krispy Kreme doughnuts are still my all-time favorite doughnuts. Getting one fresh off the shelf at the shop is one of my guilt pleasures.
These pulled pork tacos are going to rock. your. world. I have to admit, I have a bit of an obsession with tacos. It’s the one meal I can’t seem to live without for more than a week. These pulled pork tacos are my new favorite in my taco rotation.
They are packed with pulled pork, pico de gallo, pickled jalapenos, cabbage, cheese and sour cream – everything you could every want from a taco! They are so flavorful that every bite practically explodes in your mouth. You’ll find it extremely difficult to stop yourself from eating more than 3… or 4… or 5…
INSTRUCTIONS: Warm the corn tortillas for 15 to 30 seconds in the microwave to make them easier to work with. In a small bowl, stir together the ingredients for the quick pico de gallo. To assemble the tacos, pile on the pulled pork, pickled jalapeños and red onions, and pico de gallo. Top with queso fresco and sour cream. Serve immediately.

Imagine this… You’re sitting around the campfire, drinking a couple beers and joking with your friends. Then someone says, “dinner’s ready” and you all gather around a large cast iron skillet. The aluminum foil gets peeled off and you instantly smell the best campfire dinner smell ever – barbeque.
Now I’m turning that imagined experience into a reality for you with these campfire barbeque nachos! Featuring Pig of the Month meats, all you have to worry about is preparing shredded chicken prior to packing up and heading to your campsite. Then simply assemble all the ingredients, cover with foil and cook directly on the campfire until everything’s warm and the cheese is melted.
You’ll end up loving the three-meat combination on these campfire nachos so much, you’ll be building fire pits in your backyard just for an excuse to eat them on a weeknight! DIG IN!
INSTRUCTIONS: Layer the tortilla chips on the bottom of the cast iron skillet, filling it approximately 1/3 of the way full. Add the pulled pork, brisket and pulled chicken in an even layer on top of the chips.
Top the meats with black beans, sliced jalapeños, and cheese. Cover the cast iron skillet with aluminum foil and place directly on the campfire. Cook until the dish is warmed through and the cheese is melted, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. You can also cook this under the broiler on low for approximately 5 minutes at home!
Remove from heat, peel off the foil and top with the fresh tomato chunks. Serve immediately with either barbeque sauce or salsa and hot sauce.

Avocado toast might be all the rage for all those health nuts out there wanting to eat something good for breakfast or lunch, and while we appreciate the healthy attempt, I kind of like to trash my healthy plans up... With a whole heaping helping of meat in these killer Pulled Pork Veggie Avocado Toasts!
I can honestly admit that my attempts at getting healthy this year are pretty dang lame... I am not the biggest fan of sticking to a strict diet. For obvious reasons I'm sure. I mean when I have Pig of the Month BBQ Pulled Pork in my fridge, why the heck would I ever want to just eat my fruits and veggies?! Nope, instead I want to load up on my pork and I GUESS I can load up on some veggies at the same time.
With the pulled pork, these veggie avocado toasts burst with tons of flavor. It's like eating a pulled pork taco but on toast! I love making this for breakfast or lunch, or a mid-afternoon snack, because it's super easy AND it's easy to throw together in even the smallest of kitchens (like that dinky one at your office...). So load up and get healthy (well healthy-ISH)!
INSTRUCTIONS: Spread toast with a layer of mashed avocado. Top with pulled pork, chopped bell peppers, queso fresco and chopped cilantro. Serve!
