Pulled Pork with Salsa in Lettuce Cups

Despite the minor controversy concerning national attribution that erupted the last time that I made something similar to this (see 2.083 Grilled Pork & Onions with Salsa in Lettuce Cups) – by “controversy,” I mean that Number One Fan LJY got all nitpicky about it – I’m exercising my rights as the creator of the dish, as the writer of the blog, as the know-it-all of the food to categorize it as “Mexican.”  Here, the meat was leftover pulled pork from the weekend, which I’d initially fashioned into something “American.”  I topped it with salsa.  BBQ sauce = American.  Salsa = Mexican.  The logic is unassailable.
