Redneck Tacos with Creamy Coleslaw

For the next recipe today, we were really in the mood for some barbecue & some tacos. I know a really random combination to want. So we decided to combine both of them and make some southern tacos. But instead of a flour tortilla, I wanted to put a southern hoecake (or pretty much a cornbread pancake). It's unique, but doesn't taste too weird since all of those flavors are often served together at a restaurant. We really liked them, and I hope you do too! Enjoy :)

Redneck Tacos with Creamy Coleslaw & BBQ Sauce
For the Coleslaw:
3C Coleslaw Mix
1 Green Onion, Chopped
2T Feta Cheese, Crumbled
¼C Mayo
¼C Sour Cream
1t Yellow Mustard
1t White Vinegar
1t Sugar
1t Lemon Juice
Salt & Pepper

For the Hoecakes:
1C Self-Rising Flour
1C Self-Rising Cornmeal (from a mix)
2 Eggs, Beaten
1T Sugar
¾C Buttermilk
1/3C + 1T Water
¼C Vegetable Oil
Butter, For Frying

For the Redneck Tacos:
1C Pulled Pork
1C Creamy Coleslaw
Barbecue Sauce, For Drizzling 

1. First, make the coleslaw. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the mayo, sour cream, mustard, sugar, vinegar, lemon, salt, and pepper. Toss this mixture with the coleslaw mix, green onions, and feta cheese. Set aside until the tacos are ready to be assembled.
2. Next, mix the hoecakes. Combine all ingredients together except for the butter. Once it’s a cohesive batter, heat up a skillet to medium-high heat and melt some butter for frying. Fry each hoecake until brown and crispy, just a few minutes on each side. Set these hoecakes and aside so that you can begin to assemble.
3. To assemble, place a hoecake flat on the plate, top with some of the pulled pork, followed by the creamy coleslaw, and then drizzle with some barbecue sauce.
4. Serve immediately with some chips or baked beans.
*Since the recipe can be either complicated or easy to make, it just depends on how much cooking you want to do. You can easily buy the coleslaw, pulled pork, and barbecue sauce. Or if you have certain recipes that you like that are homemade you can easily substitute them to fit your taste.
