Pineapple Pork Tacos
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.
