Lime-Cilantro Pork Tacos

These easy pork tacos get their fantastic flavor from lime juice, cilantro, and fresh jalapeño. Use the same pan to brown the pork and make the rave-worthy sauce.

Lime-Cilantro Pork Tacos
cookinglight.com

1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into thin strips
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced onion
1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped plum tomato
3 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 1/2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
8 (6-inch) flour tortillas

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with salt and black pepper. Add oil to pan. Add pork, and sauté 4 minutes or until browned. Remove pork from pan; place in a bowl. Add onion and jalapeño to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add broth; reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Stir in tomato; simmer 2 minutes.

Return pork and accumulated juices to pan. Stir in cilantro and lime juice; cook 1 minute or until pork is done.

Heat tortillas according to package directions. Spoon 1/2 cup pork mixture into each tortilla; roll up.

Note:Browning the pork improves its color, and the browned bits enrich the sauce’s flavor. Add more jalapeño pepper if you enjoy spicy food.

Serves 4.
