Guajillo-Spiked Pork-And-Potato Tacos
120 mins (prep 30, cooking 90)
12 ingredients
12-16 servings
Mexican comfort food good enough to serve guests. You can even make it the day before and reheat it right before serving adding a little water if needed. This has a mild taco filling - if you like your tacos with some heat, use some New Mexico chiles in place of some of the Guajillos. Adapted from Mexico: One Plate At A Time, by Rick Bayless
