Mexican Pork Tacos, with Coriander Lemon Salsa, Corn and Avocado

Tacos are always a crowd favourite! We’ve combined Mexican spiced pork meatballs with fresh and tangy coriander, lime salsa, smokey charred corn and creamy avocado and feta!


Pork meatballs

  • 600g pork mince
  • ⅓ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg (lightly whisked)
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil (for frying)

Coriander, lemon salsa

  • ½ cup coriander (finely chopped)
  • 1 lemon (juice)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)

Charred corn

  • 1 cup frozen sweetcorn
  • Salt and pepper

To serve

  • Flour tortillas 8-12
  • 1 avocado (sliced)
  • 1 head petite cos (finely sliced)
  • 125g sour cream
  • 70g feta (crumbled)
  • Pickled onions (optional)


  1. Get started by preparing the meatballs, add all of the ingredients to a bowl and mix well to combine, we find it best to use our hands. Once combined, roll into meatballs just smaller than the size of a golf ball; set aside.

  2. To make the salsa, add all of the ingredients to a small bowl and mix well to combine.

  3. Heat a large fry pan over medium heat with a little olive oil. Once hot add the meatballs and let cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through.

  4. Once cooked, remove the meatballs from the pan and set aside while you cook the corn. Add the corn to the pan – no need to clean it as we want to corn to cook in the fat from the meatballs. Cook for 2-3 minutes over medium-high heat until golden brown and charred in places; season with salt and pepper.

  5. Time to assemble the tacos! Add a little sour cream to each tortilla then add a couple of meatballs, sliced avocado, lettuce, corn, and feta and spoon over some of the salsa. Top them off with a few pickled onions (if using) and enjoy!



  • Swap out the lettuce for some shredded cabbage.

  • Add some fresh chilli. 



  • Swap out the pork mince for beef mince or chicken mince.

  • To make this vegetarian simply swap out the pork for 400g (rinsed and drained) black beans pan-fried in the same spices and some olive oil. We also suggest doubling the amount of corn.



  • Add some jalapenos or hot sauce.

  • Swap out the flour tortillas for corn tortillas.

  • Swap out the feta for grated cheddar cheese.
