The pork in these Tacos al Pastor is made extra delicious by marinating in a mixture of pineapple, onion and spices before grilling. The Creamy Chipotle Sauce with cilantro, chiles, lime juice and avocado really rounds out the flavor of the tacos.

Ingredients

Make It

Step 1

Combine vinegar, onion, pineapple juice, achiote paste, 1 teaspoon bouillon, oregano, cumin and adobo sauce in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

Step 2

Place pork in freezer bag and pour in mixture. Seal bag; shake and press firmly with fingers to distribute marinade throughout meat. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

Step 3

Combine chopped cilantro, poblano chili, evaporated milk, lime juice, remaining teaspoon bouillon, avocado and chipotle chile in food processor or blender; cover. Process until smooth.

Step 4

Remove pork from marinade; discard marinade.

Step 5

Preheat grill.

Step 6

Cook pork for 7 minutes on one side. Turn and cook for an additional 6 minutes or until internal temperature is 145° F. Turn off the grill and allow pork to rest on the grill for 5 minutes. Cut into bite-size pieces.

Step 7

Place about 1/2 cup pork in each tortilla; top each with about 2 tablespoons creamy poblano chipotle sauce. Serve with pineapple and cilantro.

Cook's Tip:

Roast poblano chile prior to processing to give the sauce a smoky taste.
