Ready in 15 minutes

Serves 4


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 box (10oz)  Chi-Rizo Ground Pork
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Corn or grain-free tortillas for serving 
  • 2 tablespoons hot avocado oil 

For serving:

  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • Fresh cilantro
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced 
  • 2 limes, sliced 
  • ¼ cup vegan queso fresco (optional)

STEP 1 Heat the oil over medium heat in a heavy-bottomed skillet or cast iron pan. Add the onions, and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. 

STEP 2 Add the defrosted Chi-Rizo and cook over medium heat, using a wooden spoon to break up the meat, and combine everything in the pan. Continue to cook until the plant-based pork is completely cooked through, about 4 minutes more. Reduce heat down to low while you prepare the tortillas. 

STEP 3 In a separate pan, heat the avocado oil over medium-high heat. Working one or two at a time, fry the tortillas in the oil on one side so they are crispy on one side and soft on the other. This makes for easy eating. Salt the crisped tortillas as soon as they come out of the oil. Fill each tortilla with cooked taco meat and finish with the prepared toppings. Enjoy!
