  • 2 ea. Garlic cloves
  • 1 cup Onion, chopped

Directions
  1. Prepare the pastor adobo: Deseed and remove stems from chilis. Soak chilis in boiling water for 10 minutes or until very soft and pliable. Blend chilis with half of the soaking liquid and the rest of the adobo ingredients. Pass through a fine sieve and reserve.
  2. Prepare the pastor meat: Marinate the sliced pork loin with the adobo and oil for at least 30 minutes. Broil the meat on both sides (if possible, char broil for a better taste). Roughly chop the pastor meat and reserve.
  3. Prepare the fresh green salsa: Blend all the ingredients until smooth and season with salt to taste. Reserve.
  4. Assemble the tortas: Cut the telera rolls horizontally in half. Spread all halves with 2 tbsp each of mayonnaise. Divide the warm pastor meat and the sliced pineapple between the four telera roll bottoms, top each torta with 2 slices of cheese and place in a toaster oven until completely melted. Remove from oven, add avocado slices, sprinkle each one with 1 tbsp of chopped red onions and cilantro, add fresh green salsa to taste, cover with the telera tops & enjoy!
