    This is excellent! Very spicy, which I liked. I was a bit concerned about the amount of onions called for, but it turned out really well. I sprayed the tortillas with Pam and baked them to make 'em crunchy. Will definitely make again!

    Great recipe! We get tired of chicken/beef dishes, so this was a nice variation. I doubled the amount of black beans and corn, and also added fresh mango, avocado, and cherry tomatoes for the last few minutes (with the apple). It was a great combo of sweet and spicy with the pork. I ate it w/o the tortilla, used rice, and a lot of the veggies so it was more like a side dish than a salsa. Also - I did not have "green salsa" to put in it, and we didn't miss it.

    This recipe was indeed spicy - a little too much so for me! I would use less spice rub on the pork, because I felt like it detracted from the subtle elements in the salsa, namely the apple, corn, and black beans. The pork was perfect though - crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. I would recommend flour tortillas over corn tortillas, and sour cream on top to balance the spiciness!

    This was just ok. We did not love it. I doubt I'll try it again.

    This is a family favorite. If it's too spicy for you, cut back some on the ground red pepper. We make it with pork tenderloin; much easier. We get the green salsa at Trader Joe's.
