Our taco recipe will spice up your next fiesta. It features seasoned, tender-baked pork tenderloin pieces paired with a homemade pineapple salsa with melted Sargento® Ultra Thin® Mild Cheddar Cheese Slices all inside warm tortillas with an avocado mixture garnish.

  • 1 tsp. each: chili powder and ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 lb. pork tenderloin
  • 2 tsp. canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, seeded, diced
  • 1/3 cup each: diced fresh pineapple or drained canned pineapple tidbits, chopped cilantro and salsa
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 16 slices Sargento® Ultra Thin® Mild Cheddar Cheese Slices
  1. Combine chili powder, cumin and garlic salt; rub over meat.
  2. Heat oil in an ovenproof (wrap handle in foil) skillet over medium heat until hot. Add meat; cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer skillet to a preheated 375°F oven; bake until internal temperature reaches 145°F, 10 to 14 minutes depending on thickness of meat. Transfer to a carving board; tent with foil and let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine avocado, pineapple, cilantro and salsa; mix well. Cut meat into bite size chunks. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Immediately place two slices cheese over each tortilla; top with meat and avocado mixture and fold in half.
