It’s Tuesday…time for a Mighty Good Recipe!

Today marks our first submitted reader recipe. I trust Amy…and these sound good.

Chipotle-Grilled Pork Tacos
From the June/July 2008 Cook’s Country

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 (8 oz) can pineapple chunks in juice, drained and chopped 1/4 cup
juice reserved
3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons minced canned chipotle chiles in adobo
1 (8 oz) bag coleslaw mix
3 scallions, sliced thin
2 pork tenderloins (1 1/2 to 2 lbs total), sliced in half lengthwise
12 corn tortillas

1. Whisk mayonnaise, pineapple juice, cilantro, garlic and chipotle in
a large bowl; reserve 1/4 cup mayonnaise mixture. Add pineapple
chunks, coleslaw mix, scallions and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to bowl with
remaining mayonnaise mixture and toss to combine

2. Pat pork dry with paper towels and season with salt. Rub with
reserved mayonnaise mixture and grill over hot fire until browned all
over and meat registers 145 degrees; about 6 minutes. Transfer to
cutting board, tent with foil and let rest 5 minutes.

3. Grill tortillas over hot fire until lightly charred, about 15
seconds per side. Slice pork thin, arrange on tortillas, and top with

Serves 4

Note: Thinks this would be just as good with fish, chicken or beef. And don’t forget the guac!

I have always loved the stuff from America's Test Kitchen and the Cook's Country magazine is my favorite. This was one of their 30-minute meal pull out cards if I remember correctly.

I sometimes go heavy on the chipotle peppers, which is tasty, but makes the guacamole even more important. Now I want to make these soon.

Oh…and if I am feeling sort of lazy, I do this one with boneless pork chops as they cook up quicker and are easier to cut.
