Pulled Pork Tortilla Cups

This easy appetizer is made with pulled pork.  Recipe and directions for a pulled pork appetizer in bite-size tortilla cups.

pulled pork My sister likes to brag up all her amazing recipes.

Well, she is a pretty good cook, but don’t tell her I said that.

Recently, she was bragging up this sweet pulled pork she created.  She sent me the recipe, and I tried it myself.  And honestly… ?  WOW.  Yum.  I love this stuff.

I’m not going to put the whole recipe in this post, but here’s the gist of it: Marinate a big pork roast in Coke and brown sugar.  Then slow cook it in Coke with garlic cloves.  Then shred the pork, throw out the Coke it’s been cooking in, and put the shredded pork back in the slow cooker with brown sugar, enchilada sauce, and green chiles.

YUM.  It’s lucky Robb was working over the weekend, or I wouldn’t have had anything left to share with you.


By the way, these totally adorable tortilla cups were crazy easy to make.  Way easier than I expected, even.

You just cut circles, press them into a muffin tin, and bake.  I don’t know what I thought would be hard, I guess I figured making them look perfectly cute would require some sort of super power that I don’t possess.

Turns out it doesn’t.  Lucky me!


I did test this out with both corn and flour tortillas, and I liked the flour tortillas better, for sure.  The corn version baked up a touch chewy, and they were a little hard to eat.

You don’t have to use the sweet pulled pork I made, you can use any old shredded or ground seasoned meat you want.  I will warn you to serve them right out of the oven, since the cool pretty quickly and they definitely taste better hot.

After this, I may have to start making my sister’s french onion soup, too.

    Hi, Thank you for posting this recipe. I was looking for some easy to serve nibblers and these were perfect. They were tasty, easy to eat and easy to prepare and serve. I made and browned the wraps and the pulled pork the day before and it was super easy to put it all together while my guests were here. I reheated the pork in the microwave for a bit before assembling shells and heating in oven with cheese. Then added the avocado, plated and served! They were a popular choice. 🙂
