Need a new recipe for Taco Tuesday and got leftover pulled pork? Chipotle guacamole pulled pork tacos are a quick and easy week night meal – especially if you’ve made our pressure cooker pulled pork and have some in the freezer.

Chipotle Guacamole


Cut avocados in half and remove pit. Scoop out flesh. Add 1 chipotle, adobo sauce, cilantro, lime, salt and pepper.


We freeze the leftover chipotle in an ice cube tray evenly portioned with a bit of sauce so that we can freeze it. Once frozen, pop them into a Ziploc for storage. Then we can defrost and use one to flavour the guacamole. Adjust the amount you use in the recipe according to your own tolerance for hot peppers.


You can use fresh cilantro if you have it, but we often just use the equivalent of frozen chopped cilantro as shown below. We find it cuts down on food waste and is a real convenience!

You might be surprised to learn that the best smoked pulled pork recipe isn't smoked at all, doesn't even need a smoker and takes less than an hour to cook!


But you know what never disappoints? Our pulled pork recipe made in a pressure cooker - in only one hour! It's always moist and guest what? It's even smokey! You'll find the link to our recipe  here so you always have some on hand for Taco Tuesday.

One tip to keep your taco shells from getting soggy is to add some cheese on the bottom first. Then you can load the shells up with the rest of the fillings: lettuce, pulled pork, cherry tomatoes, chipotle guacamole and a bit more shredded cheese if you like.

The guacamole topping is what really makes these tacos lip smacking good. It's just 4 ingredients and mixes up in minutes (see the recipe below).
