Enjoy these EASY and delicious Ninja Foodi Pork Street Tacos using Ninja Foodi Pulled Pork!
Make the best Ninja Foodi Pork Street Tacos! These are so easy and delicious to make, all while using the Ninja Foodi to make the pulled pork for the tacos.
This recipe does make a lot of pulled pork, nearly 4 pounds of it to be exact. That means you will have plenty leftover for other meals or you can even freeze some and use it for later too.
We like to use this pork to make these Pork Street Tacos and then the next day we make Air Fryer Baked Potatoes and load them up with pork, all the fixings, and barbecue sauce. It’s a great way to make a completely different meal with the same meat.
This pulled pork is a bit different from my favorite recipe, Ninja Foodi Pulled Pork, it is made with a little less seasoning just to give it more of a Mexican style flavor to it, but you can use the Ninja Foodi Pulled Pork as well and do the exact same thing.
Tips for Making Ninja Foodi Pulled Pork Street Tacos:
It’s best to coat the pot of the Ninja Foodi with olive oil or grapeseed oil and sear the meat on all sides to give it a nice brown color; however, you can skip this step too. It’s completely up to your personal preference.
It’s best to use the pork shoulder or pork butt, both come from the front of the pig. We prefer the pork butt, which is more marbled than a pork shoulder.
Pork Butt gives that fall apart, easy to shred result. Pork Shoulder will normally have the skin on, which is also a great choice for this recipe too.
These Ninja Foodi Pork Street Tacos have all the flavors and taste of restaurant-style street tacos but made right at home in your favorite appliance.
This can be made in the Instant Pot as well using the same method.

Comments & Reviews
I tried this and loved the result! It’s the best taco recipe I’ve ever made. I found that the first time I tried it, it needed more salt (the meat didn’t absorb it while pressure cooking), so the next time I made it I made sure to salt the meat before searing. I also added a little tomato paste and Hungarian paprika for color. My husband loves the tacos!
