I don’t know about you but I’m counting down the minutes until the last day of school. I’m definitely ready for a more leisurely pace during the warmer months. I love to grill quick and easy dinners so clean up is a breeze but there are some days that I don’t even have time to cook a thing. That’s when I stop off at my local ACME Markets store to grab a few items and make a dinner that looks like it took all day long to create….but is ready in just a few minutes!
I’m so thrilled to announce that I’ll be partnering with my local ACME Markets store this year to provide fresh, easy and fast recipes using my favorite products. I’ve been shopping at ACME Markets for years and am so excited to share some fun, innovative meals incorporating a wide variety of items I know you will love. Like these Barbecue Pork Rib Tacos with Honey Lime Slaw….made with their Signature Cafe® Pork Ribs! These ready to eat ribs are basted in a sweet and tangy sauce that is absolutely amazing. They’re tender and flavorful…perfect for a quick taco dinner!
Creating a few flavor enhancing toppings for the Barbecue Pork Rib Tacos was a breeze using ACME Markets’ Signature brand products. The Signature line, available exclusively at your local ACME Markets store, includes more than 4,000 items – from pantry staples like coffee, juice, soup and cereal to fresh produce, fried chicken, and delicious prepared foods.
The Signature Kitchens® Mayonnaise and their Southwestern Style Mustard were the perfect combination for a creamy drizzle that packs a tasty punch! And the Signature Kitchens Flour Tortillas are soft and tender…grilled for a few seconds gives them a perfect char and totally makes them restaurant worthy.
Then, to pack a bit more protein and a bit of sweet….I stirred up a quick relish using Signature Kitchens Black Beans and fresh corn kernels. Tossed with a little diced red onion, this could also double as a healthy side salad! ACME Markets’ Signature line provides so many options, it was so easy to pull together a quick and easy meal on the fly. The Signature brand includes high quality products across six product sectors – Signature SELECT™, Signature Kitchens®, Signature Farms®, Signature Cafe®, Signature Home™, and Signature Care™. And all the products are available at an exceptional value so you can feed your family restaurant quality meals without breaking the bank! (Or leaving the house!)

The spices and seasonings sound good.
Looks delicious! Love all the spice!
Awesome recipe with thorough instruction.
Thank you, Natalia!
This was so good! I needed a way to use up leftovers and this was perfect. I used leftover grilled ribs, leftover cabbage and the slaw was really good with the honey. I subbed black beans for some cannellini beans since I had an opened can that also needed to be used up. And I took a southwest chipotle mayo I had on hand, but added some honey, lime juice, and a splash of water to thin it into a crema sauce. I will definitely use this recipe again!
What a great way to use up what you had on hand! Thank you so much for your comment!
I had leftover ribs that I smoked for seven hours yesterday. So, when my wife reminded me that it was Taco Tuesday, I knew I had to use them for tacos tonight.
I’ve made some pretty mean tacos in the past, but I can honestly say that these were the best I’ve ever made. I’ve only had one taco ever that was better than this, a Korean style taco from a food truck in Erie, PA.
Other than that, a big it in our house is to brown ground pork and add in about a cup of salsa verde (Wegman’s brand if you can get it) and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes on low heat. Then add avocado, feta, cilantro. Quick, easy and awesome!
Thanks, Kellie! These tacos are definitely a hit!
Love your tips! We are big fans of salsa verde so I’ll definitely have to try this soon.
Awesome for left over boneless pork ribs.
So glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for your comment.
I found this page after making BBQ spare rib tacos yesterday, using some BBQ ribs and cole slaw that were left over from the weekend. They were spectacular! So I figured someone must have done that before, and I looked online to see. Yep. No recipe needed, just cut the rib meat from the bone and cube into smaller pieces, add some additional sauce, nuke in the microwave for 30 sec or so, put in a tortilla and top with slaw (which you probably have leftover from the rib dinner). How did it take me 60 years to think of this?
It’s one of my favorite ways to use up leftovers!
