2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the carnitas

  • Set aside half the mojo for serving.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly crisped and warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in half the mojo and cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.
While the carnitas cook, prepare the guacamole.


Make the guacamole

  • Cut the avocado in half lengthwise; remove the pit and scoop out the flesh.
  • Coarsely chop half the cilantro; remove any coarse stems from the remaining cilantro and set aside the leaves for garnish.
In a medium bowl, using a fork, mash the avocado. Add the guacamole base and chopped cilantro, season generously with salt and pepper, and stir to combine.


Warm the tortillas

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry large frying pan over medium heat, warm the tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.


Set out the tortillas, carnitas, cabbage, guacamole, and remaining cilantro. Invite everyone to assemble their own tacos, topping each with 1 tablespoon mojo. Serve the remaining mojo on the side.
