Leftover Ham Tacos w/ Guacamole Cabbage Slaw

I love a good roast ham.

A big one with the bone inside with maple and sugar glaze.

Oh my gosh the yum. But when you are just a household of two and there’s only so much roasted ham we can eat without having to get creative!

I figured since ham comes from the same animal as carnitas that it might be a good idea to make tacos. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Btw can you believe we are still eating leftover Christmas Ham after St. Patrick’s Day?

Ham Taco no topping

So I took a few pieces of the ham and washed them off and laid them out to dry on some paper towels for an hour or so. Then I took a small pot and filled it with 3/4 cup of water and a half a packet of taco seasoning. Whisk it and start to heat.

For 3 tacos each for 2 people, we used 4 large pieces of sliced ham and chopped it up into small pieces and put them all in the pot. Mix them all the get the seasoning over everything, cover and heat for about 90 minutes stirring every so often.

Prepping the slaw

Then because I have only so much supply and stock of things I thought it would be a yummy combo to make a avocado cabbage slaw.

Cabbage and Avocado Slaw: 1 mushy avocado, 2 TBSP vinegar (I used apple cider since it was what I had), half a lemon and a key lime juiced and salt and pepper to taste. Mix it all together with half a cabbage chopped up and a few thinly sliced baby carrots.

Fully decorated ham tacos. Slaw, jalapeño, cilantro and feta cheese.

Make sure if you give these a try to let me know! We topped them with Feta cheese, thinly sliced jalapeño (not pictured but added to second round of these and believe they should be mentioned) and cilantro!

They are so incredible and strangely on point! Could not be more proud of my Christmas Ham Tacos 😅

Living. Loving. Reheating.
