Pulled Pork Tostada with Chipotle Caramelized Onions

This recipe isn’t very St. Patrick’s Day-esque but after making them a couple of days ago, I couldn’t resist sharing them with you today. They are super easy and include three of the most delicious things I can think of: pulled pork, caramelized onions and guacamole. And hey guacamole is green so it counts right? Let’s just go with that.

I have been really good about taking Barre classes these past few weeks. I’ve actually been going 3 times a week. It’s easiest for me to go at night so that Ryan and watch Kellan, this means that I need a dinner that is quick, easy but satisfying because I am really hungry after barre. This recipe totally fits the bill as long as I make sure to have this pulled pork on hand. Which I do. At least once a month.

You should too. It’s delicious. And gives you the opportunity to make this dish.

Which you also want to do. Because, it too, is delicious.
