Pork Tortilla Stack is a family go to!Jump to Recipe
This pork tortilla stack is a super easy dish to throw together on a Friday night. You can even get the kids to put it together, and choose their own flavours of mince and sauce! Have fun reinventing it over and over! Pork is great with a spicy taco sauce, but so is beef and chicken. Of course, you can always use salmon mince with a lighter sauce. Or make it vegetarian by using leftover roast vegetables with a wonder enchilada sauce. I usually have some tortillas in the freezer as a standby, which is how this dish came about in the first place.
Travel friendly recipe
It’s always great to have some dishes that are travel friendly. What makes them travel friendly? Well, you can buy the ingredients at just about any local grocery store. There’s not anything in this pork tortilla stack that requires a specialist shop. And it’s versatile, so you can modify it around what is available near you! You can cook it on a camp stove, and obviously, on the wonderful cooking equipment found in camper vans and caravans.

Want to make some changes? Here’s some ideas
Ok, you want to make some changes? Let’s talk some different flavour combinations for this dish. Beef mince works really well with an Italian tomato sauce. Chicken mince works so well with some light and Asian. And..are you Gluten Free? That’s easy. Swap out the wraps for Gluten Free ones, and remember to check the ingredients on the sauce that you add.
Vegetarian? No problem.
I’ve made this quite a few times as a vegetarian option. It’s so easy to use left over roast vegetables. Or a wonderful packet of already prepared vegetables that are no work! If you want to bump up the protein, add in some tofu. Or kidney beans. The flavours and texture will be amazing.
Just once, because I could. You can do the pork/beef mince mixture, and then between each layer add slices of brie cheese. Just quietly, this is divine!!! It’s gooey, messy, and has all the hallmarks of great satisfaction. Sigh.
