These tasty tacos are healthy and full of flavor, with just a little kick! It's back to school and everyone could use a little more time, so this meal is a quick and easy solution that's oh-so-delicious!
Serving Size: 2 tacos
For Green Sauce and Tacos
(Makes 35 one teaspoon servings - halve the recipe if you don’t need that much!)
Place ribs, salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, and chipotle pepper (if using) into a crockpot. Cover with orange juice, orange zest and water and cook on low for 6 hours. Shred meat with forks and allow it to continue warming.
To make sauce: combine cilantro, garlic, jalapeno, lime juice olive oil and Greek yogurt in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. Sauce should be able to be drizzled. If it is too thick, add water and mix again.
To make taco shells: break leaves off the bunch of curly leaf lettuce and use a large knife to break the stem. Fill each taco with about 1-2 ounces of pork and peppers, 1 tbsp. of yogurt and 1 tsp. of the green sauce.
