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.

    Small chop onions and cilantro, then wedge your lime and reserve for taco time.

    Heat the Beans

    Place beans into small pan and heat on low until heated through. Add water if you need to loosen it up and keep warm for plate up.

    Cook the Pork

    Heat saute pan on medium high heat. Add 1 tbls of oil, and then when hot, add pork. Saute until pork is cooked or approximately 2-3 minutes. The meat should be white all of the way through with no pink. Once the pork is done, toss with remaining sauce until pork is evenly coated.
