Notes

Helpful tips
  • You can make the pulled pork either the same day or even days before. The meat also freezes well.
  • If I'm using my pulled pork from the freezer, I take it out the day before and let it defrost in the fridge overnight.
  • I prefer flour over corn tortillas but use whatever you prefer.
  • Get away from the conventional cooking spray and get a healthier version like olive oil spray. You'll be happy you did.
  • When you bake the tortillas, I recommend standing at the oven and checking through the window to make sure they don't get too brown.
  • The tortillas may puff up or bubble, but don't worry about it because once you start putting on the layers, they will flatten out.
