I like pork. I don’t like eating it the same way every time. I like tacos. I don’t like preparing it the same way every time. So why is it that pork tacos have never entered my mind. Even when I dine out, it’s chicken or fish tacos for me.
I bought a can of chipotle in adobo sauce for another recipe (coming soon), and figured I might as well open one can and use it to make Chipotle Pork Tacos.
- 1 pound pork tenderloin, sliced thin
- 1 ½ tsp grated lime zest
- 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 2 teaspoon chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced and halved
- chopped cilantro
- 8 (6 inch) corn tortillas
- In a large shallow dish, combine the lime zest, lime juice, oregano, brown sugar, chipotles, garlic, and salt.
- Add the pork and mix well. Set aside.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 tsp olive oil.
- Add onions and sauté for 4 minutes or until tender.
- Remove from pan and set aside.
- spray the pan with non stick spray and add pork mixture.
- Saute for 3-4 minutes or until no longer pink. Add pork to onions.
- Warm tortillas covered in paper towel in the microwave for 20 seconds.
- Serve with you favorite toppings.
Now, once again, I am a happy camper. This time it was because Mel had seconds. I love it when my family has seconds. It makes my day.
There you go! A twist on the traditional taco!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
