What could be better on a warm summer evening than Pulled Pork Tacos with Grilled Peach Salsa? These tacos are bursting with flavor and are really easy to make ahead.
I’m so excited that the #SundaySupper tastemakers are celebrating one of my all time favorite foods, summer peaches! In my opinion summer peaches are best just eaten as they are in all their juicy glory, but I also love making peach pie and other fabulous desserts when peaches are in season.
Much as I love a good peach dessert, for today’s #SundaySupper event I wanted to show off how well peaches can work in a savory dish. So I created this recipe for Pulled Pork Tacos with Grilled Peach Salsa. I’ve made this recipe before using pineapple instead of peach. Both taste great, but I do think the sweet tart flavor of a really great peach pairs perfectly with rich and smoky pulled pork.
The pork is first slow-cooked in a sauce made with one of my go-to ingredients, Chipotles in Adobo. The smoky flavor of the chiles is just right for the pulled pork and the chipotles have a subtle heat that doesn’t overwhelm the flavors in the dish.
If you’ve never grilled fruit I can’t wait for you to try this Grilled Peach Salsa. Grilling the fruit gets the juices flowing and highlights the sweetness of the fruit. I grill all the vegetables for the salsa. I also add a hint of honey and cumin to the salsa and just a pinch of dried Epazote. Epazote is an herb used in Mexican cuisine for it’s slightly tangy flavor. Be careful when you use it, a little goes a long way. You can use dried oregano in place of the Epazote. I make a big bowl of salsa and it does double duty as both a side salad and as a condiment on the tacos.
It’s very easy to work ahead to make these Pulled Pork Tacos with Grilled Peach Salsa. The pork can be slow roasted the day before and kept in the refrigerator over night. I made my own corn tortillas earlier in the day and reheated them on the grill while the meat was grilling. Of course you can buy packaged tortillas. But if you want to try making your own they’re pretty easy to make. You’ll need to get a bag of corn masa to make the dough and the only special equipment needed in a tortilla press.
The salsa can be made several hours before you’re ready to serve or even the day before. The only thing left to do to get dinner on the table is to grill the pork and warm up the tortillas.
Special ingredients and equipment: Chipotles in Adobo, Epazote, tortilla press, Corn masa Look for tomatillos that feel heavy and have slightly separated from the papery skin. You can replace tomatillos with tomatoes if you prefer.
