Tasty!! Two changes ... I added a bit more pepper, I like spice and also I did add some diced avocado for a fresh cool flavor to the wrap. And me, I did have sour cream as a garnish.

But, the recipe was good as is. I just love sour cream with any kind of Mexican type food. Nice recipe and blend of flavors.
Thx for sharing a great recipe

Very tasty. These tasted healthy, but in a good way. Loved the zip from the lime & the freshness from the cilantro. No cheese or sour cream was needed, just a little dab of hot sauce. Pork tenderloin is pricey, so used 2 pork loin chops and it was tender and good. Corn tortillas. Will make again, thanks.

Wow - this was GREAT! It came together very quickly and hubby loved it. I used a little more cilantro than the recipe called for and we topped the tacos with sour cream. I served them with Cuban Black Beans, also a cooking light recipe. We'll do this one again!
