  1. Heat a skillet with oil (first portion for huevos) over medium-high heat. Add pork and saute, breaking pork apart, until pork is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain off excess liquid / fat. Set aside, covered to keep warm.
  2. Next, heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add oil (second portion for huevos). Crack eggs into heated oil (you may have to work in batches) and cook until the whites are set. If you like your eggs less runny, cover the pan with a lid and cook until eggs are at the consistency you want.
  3. Toss slaw and season with some salt and pepper.
  4. Divide pork between serving bowls. Top pork with eggs, slaw, salsa, and avocados. Enjoy!
