Switch up your taco salad with pulled pork and a creamy, avocado ranch slaw. This quick and easy meal is great for lunch or dinner!
This post is a collaboration as a Curly’s BBQ Ambassador for 2017. Throughout this year (and next!), I’ll be sharing delicious recipes featuring Curly’s BBQ!
We always have Curly’s pulled pork in our fridge or freezer…just waiting for a busy night to make a delicious meal. You can find it right in the refrigerated section at your grocery store. I love how versatile Curly’s can be! You can make Cubano sliders, hash with a fried egg on top or (our favorite!) sliders with Asian slaw. This taco salad is up on our list of favorites now!
You can buy the taco shell at the store or make your own– I love the ones found in the refrigerator section (right by the cinnamon rolls and dough). Once you have the shell, everything can be made in less than 5 minutes while the pork is heating up.
For the salad part of the meal, I take a little help from the store with coleslaw mix. Curly kale adds extra crunch and a boost of vitamins! Feel free to use whatever salad fixings you have on hand! Adding black beans would be delicious for this taco salad, too!
