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.


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.
