"This is a very easy dish that can be prepped in advance. After that, it's a snap. Be sure to slice the pork thinly; it does not take long to cook. Pepitas (pumpkinseed kernels) are popular in Mexican cooking; keep an eye on them while toasting so they don't burn. I like to serve this dish with salsa and baked chips." —Linda Croley, Birmingham, Alabama
