Tequila Habanero Country Rib Pork Tacos with sishito peppers, bell peppers, cojita and caramelized onions are the most delicious pork tacos ever!
I love country rib tacos – they are one of the best ways to eat country/short ribs, ever.
Country ribs (and short ribs) are rich and full of flavor – and are super easy to make. After a quick browning, you can chuck them in a dutch oven or slow cooker and come back in a few hours to a delicious, decadent meal.
But toss them in tacos with some onions, a few types of peppers, and cotija cheese?
Then you have something magical!
I can’t under-sell these tacos, because they are that good.
And really- these are so easy to make!
It’s perfect for parties too- you can set out all of your ingredients and let guests make their own tacos in a little impromptu taco bar!
Adding shishito peppers is a fabulous accompaniment to the tacos – it gives a little bit of a bright and citrus-y kick!
In some of the pictures here, I had the stems still on the peppers- but obviously, you need to take them out when you go to eat them.

- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 large onion, halved and then sliced into strips
- 1 bell pepper, sliced into strips
- 6 flour tortillas, uncooked
- 3 cups tequila habanero pork taco mix
- 2 cups cotija cheese
- 6-12 blistered shishito peppers
- In a large pan, heat olive oil until shimmery.
- Add peppers and onions and cook until browned, stirring occasionally to prevent burning, about 15 minutes.
- In a separate pan, add uncooked tortillas on low one at a time and heat until slightly blistered and puffy, about 5 minutes per side. (If using cooked tortillas, just heat them a minute per side in a dry pan).
- When peppers and onions are caramelized, add a little to each tortilla, along with pork taco mix, and 1-2 shishito peppers.
- Top with cotija, serve immediately!
