For the carnitas, wipe dry the pork roast. Rub in salt and pepper, then rub olive oil over pork. Mix the garlic powder, ground cumin, coriander, and oregano. Rub the spices onto the pork.

I love tacos. And I loved these tacos! They were a delicious twist on a classic dish.

Delicious! I couldn't get enough of these tacos.

LOVE these. The feta cheese and cream sauce are amazing flavors.

The sauce was great. I don't usually have a creamy sauce like that on my tacos, but it works!

Yum! I loved the sauce that went with the tacos. Next time I will add some hot sauce or red pepper flakes when cooking the meat.

So good! I've never put a creamy sauce on my tacos before, but on these it tasted AMAZING

YUM. Really great flavor. Cilantro is a fabulous ingredient.

I love mexican food! Gotta give this a try for sure.

This picture looks completely delicious! I love the idea of using feta cheese in a taco.

I think the name is unfortunate (it sounds like these tacos are moldy), but from the recipe description, these sound delicious! I love tacos and garlic, so garlic sauce on tacos sounds delightful.
