Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min

This is not a recipe that is offered in Chipotle's restaurants but it uses the same ingredients, influences and cooking methods.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch of ground cumin
  • Pinch Kosher salt
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons achiote paste (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 pounds boneless pork loin, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into long, thick strips
  • 12 tortillas
  • Chopped onions
  • Cilantro
  • Hot sauce
  • Cooking Directions

    In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, vinegar, oregano, chile powder, black pepper, cumin, salt to taste, honey orange juice, and achiote paste. Add the pork slices and turn to coat both sides. Marinate for at least 1 hour.

    Heat the grill. Place the meat over hot coals and cook, turning once and basting with any leftover marinade during cooking, until crisp. At the same time, grill the pineapple strips, turning as needed, until lightly browned.

    To assemble, chop the grilled pork into 1/4-inch pieces. Cut the pineapple into 1/2-inch pieces. Place the pork on the warmed tortillas and top with onions and cilantro and pineapple pieces. Serve with hot sauce on the side.
