The other day I was plum out of ideas as to what to make for dinner. I had only a few bell peppers in my fridge, an onion and some corn tortillas. I didn’t have time to thaw some chicken, so I turned to a roll of Jimmy Dean Sausage I had in the freezer that I could easily thaw and use for dinner. I decided to spice this pork up a little and serve on a cheesy tortilla and the combination was amazing! If you are tired of regular tacos, give these Chipotle Pork Street Tacos a try. You’re going to love them!

  1. Dice the onion into small pieces. Chop the chipotle peppers as well. Dice the peppers and set aside.
  2. In a saute pan, bring the pan to medium-high heat. Place the ground pork sausage into the pan and with a wooden spoon, break the meat up into small pieces. Once the meat is starting to heat up, add the diced onions to the sausage and saute until the sausage is cooked through. To the meat mixture, add the chopped chipotle peppers, diced bell peppers, salt and pepper, tomato paste, taco seasoning and lime juice. Continue to saute until seasoned and tender. Once meat is cooked through, turn the heat down and set aside.
  3. On a griddle pan, heat to medium heat and place several corn tortillas onto the griddle. Sprinkle with a little cheddar cheese to melt slightly. Top with some of the sausage mixture and bake until tortilla is crispy and ready to serve. Garnish with slices of avocado, sour cream and fresh cilantro.
