When I made Pulled Pork Tacos last week I had a feeling that Ryan needed a little something to hold him over until dinner. You could attribute this feeling to woman’s intuition or to the fact that Ryan was grabbing and eating the pork faster than I could shred it. Either way, if that kept up, we wouldn’t have anything left over for tacos. In other words, I needed to do something and I needed to do it quickly. These bite size pork crisps were a great solution. With all of the yummy flavor of a pulled pork taco in bite size appetizer form, they are filling enough to tide over even the hungriest of husbands.
The idea for this was kind of like a shot in the dark. I had all of the fixin’s for tacos right there in front of me so I decided what the heck, lets give it a try. In a bowl I mixed together some of the shredded pork, a few diced onions, some avocado and jalapenos. Next I opened a bag of my favorite kettle style potato chips and picked out a few that were rather flat or had just a slight curl, creating a nice pocket that was perfect for a scoop of the pork mixture. I piled the pork mixture on top and that was that. The salty, crunchiness of the potato chip paired nicely with the tender pork , creamy avocado and spicy jalapeno. The combination of flavors created a tasty treat that we couldn’t stop eating, yet they are small enough that we still had room for tacos.
If you're not a potato chip fan, these would also be good with crispy, salty tortilla chips. Enjoy!
