Chipotle Pork Tacos

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.
