Crispy Pork Belly Tacos with Peach Mango Salsa (Paleo, Nut Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free)


Happy Cinco de Mayo!! Cinco de Mayo MIGHT be my favorite holiday (I think I say that about every holiday🤔) and signifies the beginning of SUMMER to me. It’s no secret that I love Mexican food, especially tacos! They’re so versatile and you can literally put anything in a taco and make it delicious. For this Cinco de Mayo I decided to get creative and make pork belly tacos with a fruity salsa.


I had the most amazing pork belly tacos in Colorado and I’ve fixated on them ever since. Then I saw pork belly at Whole Foods and I knew what I had to do. The pork belly has a long cooking time, but its almost completely hands off. So don’t fear- easy peasy, lemon squeezy! I know you don’t have time for a 3 hour cooking sesh, because I don’t either!


We’ve all had mango salsa, but I wanted to make a twist on it. If you can find local peaches (especially here in Arkansas😍) this salsa will be even better! The cold salsa mixed with the hot fatty meat is just too good! It’s perfect for a backyard party and I know one thing for sure… you will LOVE these tacos!
