Tacos are my absolute favorite, and this was like a pork taco. Thought it was o.k. I'm just not crazy about pork though

This was awesome!! A new favorite!!

This recipe is delicious. Tastes like real homemade Mexican food. I use Lawry's package taco sauce.

Sounds goooood! I will try it, thank u for the recipe.

what is taco sauce? does she mean salsa

Ortega makes a smooth taco sauce in mild, medium or hot. It is not chunky like salsa and has a more concentrated flavor. I hope this helps!

Ortega is fine, but for a more authentic taste, you might try El Pato. It is generally sold in the Mexican food section of most grocers.

I use Salsa it so much better with the Chunky Salsa
