    1. Preheat air fryer to 325°F according to manufacturer’s directions.
    2. Meanwhile, cut pork belly into ½-inch-thick slices. Then cut slices crosswise into ¾-inch pieces; transfer to a medium bowl. Lightly spray pork pieces with cooking spray; toss.
    3. In a small bowl combine chile powder, sugar and cumin. Sprinkle over pork pieces; toss until evenly coated.
    4. Lightly spray the air-fryer basket with cooking spray. Place pork pieces in the basket. Cook for 16 to 18 minutes or just until pork pieces begin to crisp, shaking pork pieces in basket or tossing with tongs after every 6 minutes.
    5. To assemble tacos, spoon pork pieces on warm tortillas. Top with desired toppers. Serve with lime wedges.

    Pork belly is a family favourite and alwys goes down well. However, we found the rub a bit on the bland side so we added some smoky chipotle seasoning.

    The pork belly itself was very bland. I had to add salt, pepper, onion, garlic, and a dash of taco seasoning. The cook time worked well though.
