Chipotle-Grilled Pork Tacos
From Cook's Country
Pork tenderloin can become bland and dry when cooked. We wanted a grilled pork recipe that kept this lean cut tender and juicy. One of the ways we did this was by halving the pork tenderloins lengthwise to create more surface area for the smoky wet rub to develop into a flavorful crust. Chipotle chiles add heat and rich flavor to this pork tacos recipe. These chiles, which are smoked jalapeños, come packed in a tomato-based adobo sauce and can be found in the Mexican foods section of most supermarkets. We allowed the pork to rest for at least five minutes before slicing so the juices could redistribute through the meat. Toasting the tortillas over the fire until they were lightly charred—about 15 seconds—added another layer of flavor to our Chipotle-Grilled Pork Tacos recipe.
Halving the tenderloins lengthwise creates more surface area for the wet rub to develop into a flavorful crust. Serve these tacos with shredded cheese and lime wedges, if desired
