A note about serious food allergies

This is a dish that comes to mind after a few cervezas. Tacos Al Pastor evolved in central Mexico and some say that it was adapted from Lebanese immigrants that made it to Mexico. We use organic pork loin, Spanish style rice, and refried beans, along with Queso Fresco to jazz up this zesty classic.
