The thing about going on a good holiday is that when I get back, all I want to do is go on another holiday. Seriously, I can never go on enough holidays and I get into a mini funk for the first few days back home. So over the years, I have developed a few ways of dealing with my mini holidays blues.
1) Do a lot of nice things when I get back home.
2) Listen to some happy music. Then repeat.
3) Pretend I am still on holiday by cooking and eating holiday food.
By holiday food I mean things like these “to die for,” healthier, smoky chilli-marinated grilled pork tacos. Which are loaded to the brim with guacamole, spring onions and crunchy shredded cabbage. How can I be sad when I sit down to these tacos three nights in a row? Just so you know, this is one of my many pork tacos recipes in my repertoire – more to come on the blog soonish.
And they are pretty easy to make too. I simply marinated the pork in a smoky chilli sauce for about 30 mins before grilling it. So go hunt round in your pantry for that long forgotten chilli sauce and make these. And if you don’t have the soft tacos then just use pita or any other flat bread instead.
So here is my healthier smoky chilli-marinated grilled pork tacos recipe. I hope you enjoy every mouthful.
