“These are easy to do at home and oh-so-much-better than you-know-who's tacos. Tacos are meant to be a snack and as such, they are not supposed to be overstuffed with fillings and garnishes. If you have access to a Latino market, you should be able to find different types of ground chili powder. Any medium-hot chili powder will do, of course.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Generously season pork with salt and pepper; add garlic, chile powder and cumin and mix well massaging spices into the meat.
  2. Marinate at least an hour, or up to overnight, refrigerated.
  3. Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat; once oil begins to shimmer, add meat and let sizzle, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Turn off heat and keep meat warm.
  5. Heat tortillas on a dry griddle or another cast iron pan, turning them once or twice, until they are hot and slightly puffed; stack them on a clean cloth napkin and cover with another napkin so that they steam.
  6. To serve: Stack 2 hot tortillas on a plate and spoon on a little pork, top with a spoonful of tomatillo salsa and another of the salsa cruda; garnish with radishes and cilantro.
