6 servings (serving size: 2 tortillas, 2/3 cup pork mixture, and 1/2 cup salsa)

Pork, a common taco filling throughout Latin America, takes well to spices. A slightly sweet fruit salsa helps balance the heat. Serve with lime wedges.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare salsa, combine the first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir until well blended. Cover and chill.

Step 2

To prepare tacos, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion to pan; cook 2 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes or until pork loses its pink color, stirring occasionally. Stir in broth and next 7 ingredients (through chipotles). Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Uncover and simmer 10 minutes or until liquid is nearly evaporated. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Serve pork mixture with tortillas and salsa.

Just mediocre. Not much flavor. Followed the recipe with no changes. Salsa was good. Would use the salsa with a better pork/taco recipe or with a spicy grilled chicken recipe.

Excellent and unique summertime meal. Have used shredded pork as well as the sliced tenderloin. A side of rice goes well with the tacos. Love the salsa & will make this dish often.

We LOVED it. Nice spice although for kids I would only use one of the peppers in adobe sauce. Also used organic handmade corn tortillas that made this absolutely perfect. This is perfect for a weeknight or weekend or for friends. I served the dish with broccoli (need my veggies) with some of the salsa on top. It was fantastic.

Muy Bueno! We loved these. I can't believe this dish could be rated anything other than 5 stars. I will make this again and hopefully often. 4/13/14 Tonight I made these with just seasoned black beans and guacamole on the side with some (midwestern) flour tortillas - nice and thick and substantial; no pineapple salsa. SO GOOD!!!

Didn't like this at all. There is another CL pork & pineapple recipe that is much better. The salsa didn't turn out as expected. I won't make this again.
