We like to call these “fiesta bowls” because they know just how to stir things up at dinnertime. They’ve got all the best ingredients for making your taste buds boogie: tender precooked pulled pork, warm spices, and a tangy tomato salsa. Plus, garnishes like Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, and herbaceous cilantro are guaranteed to keep the vibes lively. But the real story of the night might be that this dish can be on the table in as little as 20 minutes.
