Shred Your Butt Tacos: A Los Paleo Recipe


They’re absolutely delicious, but with ingredients such as beans, rice, tortillas and sour cream, there’s no way that tacos can be considered paleo…

…or can they?

With a little work, you can make tacos not only paleo, but abso-freaking-lutely delicious. I’d like to introduce you to the Shred Your Butt Tacos – pork butt tacos that are as good as they sound.

Put on your apron & lets start cooking!

Shred Your Butt Tacos

Serves: 2

This recipe for “Shred Your Butt Tacos” is absolutely delicious. With a mild flavor, this recipe serves 2 (you can always make more), but before you get to cooking, you’re going to need a few ingredients:


  • 2 cups shredded pork butt, cooked
  • 1 head boston lettuce, leaves washed and separated
  • 1/2 cup carrot, shredded
  • 1/2 cup purple cabbage, shredded
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 mango, sliced
  • fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • sea salt, to taste


  1. In a small to medium size saucepan warm pork over medium to medium-high heat. Be sure to stir the meat so it doesn’t burn on the bottom.
  2. Carefully tear leaves off the head of boston lettuce, wash and pat dry with a paper towel then set aside.
  3. Spoon warmed shredded pork into boston leaves.
  4. Top each pork taco with shredded carrot, shredded purple cabbage, 1-2 slices of avocado, 1-2 slices of mango each and finish it off with 1-2 strips of fresh cilantro.
  5. For a quick hit of citrus, squeeze a few drops of fresh lime juice from a lime on top and a pinch of sea salt.
  6. Serve and enjoy! 🙂

As mentioned above, this serves two, but if you’re like most people, you might want to make a few more once you realize how tasty these are (plus it’s a sure-fire way to make some new friends).
