Coconut Lime Pork Tacos

This tacos with tropical flare are delicious!

1 lb ground pork
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 large garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp smoked paprika
Cayenne pepper, to taste
2/3 c coconut milk, stirred
3 tbsp pineapple juice
2 tbsp lime juice
Corn or flour tortillas
1 large avocado, diced
Other recommended toppings: chopped cilantro, sour cream, shredded cheddar or Monterey jack cheese

In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and a large pinch of salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until they’ve softened, about 3 to 5 minutes. Push the onion and garlic to one side of the pan, and add the cumin, chili powder, paprika, oregano, and cayenne. Let sizzle in the pan until they’re toasted and fragrant, about 1 minute, then stir well until the onions and garlic are evenly coated with the spices.

Add the ground pork to the pan. Cook over medium-high heat, breaking up any large chunks of pork and stirring occasionally, until the pork is just cooked through. Remove any excess fat from the pan.

Add the coconut milk; simmer for about 5 minutes until thickened, then stir in the black beans, pineapple juice and lime juice and cook for an additional minute or two.

Serve in warm tortillas with your favorite toppings.

Serves 4.
