1. Heat the taco shells according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a 9- or 10-inch skillet over moderate heat. Add the onions, celery, and garlic. Cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes, or until the onions are soft. Stir in the tomato sauce, chilies, oregano, and salt. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes, then add the pork and heat through—about 1 minute.
