If there is one thing I know about people it’s that they love tacos. There is something about the taco shell, fresh ingredients and spicy kick that keeps people happy and hungry. Tacos are easily one of the most craved foods in the world. There is even a day designated to eating tacos called, “Taco Tuesday”. It’s a real thing that people have become obsessed with. Restaurants and cantinas all over have made this a staple on their menu. They swear by their tacos and recipes to stay on top of the competition. They also try and price these bad boys low so that more people come and buy more than one. If you only eat one taco then you hopefully have a side of guacamole, chips and a Michelada because no one eats just one taco.

We make authentic, seriously delicious mole sauce and we wanted to include that with this popular dish. Some flavorful tacos with our mole sauce really sounds like perfect harmony to my ears.

Meat Tacos with Mi Huerta Mole
• 1/3 cup prepared Mi Huerta Mole (3 ounces)
• 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
• 3 cups shredded roast pork or chicken (about 1 pound)
• Twelve 8-inch corn tortillas
• 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack (4 ounces)
• Chopped cilantro, sliced scallions and lime wedges, for serving
How to Make It
In a medium saucepan, whisk the mole into the broth and bring to a boil. Add the pork and simmer over moderately low heat for 10 minutes. Keep warm.
Wrap tortillas in a clean kitchen towel. Warm them in a microwave at high power for 2 minutes, or until hot and pliable.
Lay 4 tortillas on a work surface; keep the rest covered with the towel. Fill each tortilla with a few tablespoons of the meat. Roll up the tortillas into tight cylinders and transfer to a platter. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and meat. Spoon about 3/4 cup of the mole sauce on top. Garnish with the cheese, cilantro, scallions and lime wedges, then serve with the remaining mole sauce.
