Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 8 -10
- 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
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.
