Sisig Taco

This is Sisig Taco. Sisig is said to have been invented in Angeles City, Phils. Pork Sisig is a mainstay for contemporary Filipino “Pulutan”, a hot snack that is often served with beer. You can eat sisig alone, with rice or in this recipe, with flour tortillas. I think sisig is great with everything. Try this one and let us know what you think.
