Pork Tacos with homemade tortillas

     When we go to Mexican restaurants, which is probably more often than our budget allows, my husband almost always orders a pork dish. I'm, really trying to do a better job of sticking to said budget. This recipe is one that I came across (bravo.tv) that seemed relatively healthy and easy to make at home.
     I used premade salsa, but you could definitely make your own for an even fresher taste.

Tortillas:
¾ cup oats, pulverized
1 ½ cup flour
¼ cup olive oil
½ cup cold water
1 Tbl salt 
Filling:
2 lbs pork butt
2 Tbl chili powder
1 Tbl garlic powder
1 Tbl onion powder
Salt & Pepper
Water
Salsa 
Optional toppings: cheese, sour cream, guacamole
 
  • For the Tortillas: Place dry ingredients in a stand mixer with dough hook. Add wet ingredients and knead for 5 minutes. Allow dough to rest for at least 20 minutes. Using a tortilla press, press golf ball size portions between parchment paper. On a dry griddle over medium-high heat, cook tortillas until lightly brown.
  • For the Pork Carnitas: Season and rub pork with spices, salt, and pepper. Roast for about an hour or until meat is done. Discard liquid. 
  • Pour roasted tomato salsa over pork and reserve in warm place.
  • To Assemble: Warm tortillas wrapped in a damp towel in a low oven. Place tortillas on plate. Top with pork and salsa
