Chipotle Pork Tacos

  • Author: Sara Wells
  • Yield: 4 1x




  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 tsp grated lime zest
  • 1 Tbs fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp minced fresh oregano, or a heaping 1/2 tsp dry
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (use the peppers for heat and the adobo sauce for a mild smoky bite. I used 1 1/2 Tbs of sauce and no peppers and it was hardly spicy at all.)
  • 2 tsp bottled minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup thinly sliced shallots, or onions
  • 8 (6 inch) corn tortillas


Combine thinly sliced pork, lime zest, lime juice, oregano, brown sugar, chipotles, garlic, and salt.  Set aside.  Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 tsp olive oil.  Add onions and sauté for 4 minutes or until tender.  Remove from pan and set aside.  Add 2 tsp olive oil to pan and add pork mixture.  Saute for 3-4 minutes or until no longer pink.  Add pork to onions.  Warm tortillas on a hot grill and fill with pork mixture.  Top with sour cream and cilantro.
