Pineapple Pork Tacos

Pineapple Pork Tacos

Serves 4.

Later this week, on Thursday the 22nd, Pineapple Grass will turn one year old! In celebration, each recipe this week will star pineapple as an ingredient. Enjoy!

A great taco recipe! Something different than "the norm," but still full of that familiar tex-mex flavor we all love.

1 chipotle chile, plus 2 T. sauce (from 1 can chiles in adobo sauce)
3 T. honey
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 small pineapple, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 lb. boneless pork chops
1/2 small white onion, sliced
1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro leaves
8 tortillas, warmed

Preheat grill to medium.
In a blender, puree chile, sauce, honey, garlic, half of pineapple slices, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Pour 1/3 cup sauce into a pie plate; pour remainder into a small bowl for serving.

Add pork to sauce in plate; turn to coat. Let stand. Grill onion and remaining pineapple 4-6 minutes, until tender, turning. Transfer to cutting board.

Grill pork, thinly coated with sauce, 6-8 minutes or until meat just loses its pink color, turning once.

Chop onion and pineapple; place in bowl. Stir in cilantro and 1/4 t. each salt and pepper. Cut pork into chunks; place in tortillas with pineapple mixture. Serve with reserved sauce.
