From WW Magazine. Use fresh pineapple if you can for the best texture.
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cumin
- 1⁄2 lb pork tenderloin or 1⁄2 lb well trimmed pork loin, sliced into thin strips
- 2 teaspoons olive oil or 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 2 poblano chiles, seeded, deveined, and sliced into 1/4-inch (wear gloves to prevent irritation)
- 1 medium onion, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup pineapple tidbits, drained if canned (1/2-inch pieces)
- 8 (6 inch) corn tortillas
- To prepare the marinade, combine the lime juice, chili powder, garlic, and cumin in a zip-close plastic bag; add the pork. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag; turn to coat the pork. Let stand 10 minutes or refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, up to 2 hours. Drain, reserving the marinade.
- Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and saute 3 minutes; transfer with a slotted spoon to a heatproof plate.
- Return the skillet to the heat and add the chilies, onion, and salt. Cook, stirring, until nearly tender, about 8 minutes. Add the pork and its juices, pineapple, and reserved marinade. Cook, stirring until the pineapple is softened and the pork is cooked through, about 5 minute.
- Meanwhile, heat the tortillas according to package directions.
- To serve, spoon a generous 1/3 cup of the filling into each tortilla and roll up to close.
- 5 Points per serving (2 tortillas).
This was quick and easy, we actually rated it 3.5 but thats not an option
Excellent flavor! This is so easy to prepare. I added some red pepper flakes to give it more heat. I served it with whole wheat tortillas cuz that's what I had on hand. DH likes his on the side while I like mine wrapped in the tortilla. I also topped it with some cilantro, non-fat sour cream and salsa. The pineapple added a nice refreshing taste. This is a keeper. Thanks mariposa13 for posting.
I made a half recipe of this and had it for lunch. I loved the combination of the cumin and chili powder with the pineapple. A great new variation on tacos I can't wait to make again.
