Beer-battered Avocado Tacos

Right now, avocados are a good deal with some markets selling them for 89 cents! I deep-fried several wedges in a beer batter and had delicious tacos for days. I added a lemon red cabbage slaw, bacon, pickled jalapeno, red onion and a romoulade sauce. Photo: Becca Henry

North Carolina Pulled Pork Tacos

I love the tangy pucker of a great North Carolina pulled pork. It really is a marriage made in hog heaven, with sweet pork and yellow mustard sauce. I tried something new, thanks to my brother Lee. To cook the pork, simply massage in a rub (the night before or minutes before), set your oven to 250 degrees, place fatty side up in a roasting pan on a pile of sliced onions and bake for about 6 hours. Even better, put it in overnight. Once the pork shreds easily, make the sauce according to the recipe link below and perfection. I find slow roasting much tastier and easier than stuffing it all into a crock pot and boiling the pork. You’d better, too. Photo: Becca Henry
