Ingredients

  • 4 cups chopped pork loin or chicken breast
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning Or you can substitute with 1/2 tablespoon chili powder, 1/2 tablespoon cumin, and a pinch of paprika, which is what I usually do to control the salt factor
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2-4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 cups corn
  • 3 cups shredded cheese I used a Jack cheese, but cheddar would work nicely as well
  • 1/2 cup jarred jalapeno slices no juice (or fresh de-seeded slices if you like it extra spicy!)
  • 6- inch flour tortillas

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, cook pork or chicken, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper, over medium-high heat until cooked through (about 10-20 minutes).
  • Drain excess fat. Return to skillet. Add seasoning and additional salt and pepper to taste. Stir to fully coat. Set aside.
  • In a lightly greased cupcake pan, place the tortillas as you would place a cupcake liner. (You can fill them now with the meat, corn, jalapenos, and cheese if you'd like to bake them all together)
  • Bake in a 350° oven for about 15 minutes or until the tortillas get golden and crispy.
  • Remove from the cupcake pan and fill with pork, cheese, jalapeño and cheese, if you haven't already.
  • Serve with additional toppings such as sour cream, guacamole, or pico de gallo, and enjoy.
