  • 1 pork tenderloin, sliced into 4 centimeter slices
  • 18 corn tortillas
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped (can substitute parsley if you don’t like cilantro)


  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 chipotle peppers, in adobo
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup olive oil



  1. Blend all together.  You can double this recipe and reserve the second batch for a sauce.


  1. Marinate pork for at least four hours, up to overnight.  Grill on medium heat about two to three minutes per side, being mindful not to burn the sugars in the marinade.  Take of grill, then chop pork into pieces.  Toss in left over marinade that's been reserved as a sauce. 
  2. Grill the tortillas slightly, then fill w/ pork, top with onions and cilantro.  Serve with lime wedges and pineapple salad!
