Pulled Pork Low Carb Taco Bake

Here’s a great way to kill two birds with one recipe – so to speak!  First of all, we can always use more recipes for our leftover Pulled Pork.  Second, it’s another way of adding Mexican cuisine to your Low Carbohydrate life style.  This is a compilation of a few recipes I found online that I tweaked slightly and substituted Pulled Pork for Hamburger.  The Pulled Pork Taco Bake crust turned out wonderful and the overall texture and blend of flavors was reminiscent of an Enchilada Casserole.  This is one recipe that I’ll repeat and continue tweaking … not because it needs it but because that’s my nature.
