Makes 6 servings:

Tacos Al Pastor Marinade

  • 1 two ounce packet of Chicamonina Tacos Al Pastor Spice Mix

  • 1 cup of pineapple juice

Mix ingredients in a sauce pan. Bring to a low boil, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool sauce to room temperature.

Directions for Tacos

  • Tacos Al Pastor Marinade (see above)

  • 2.5 lbs. of pork butt or shoulder, diced to 1/2 inch

  • 3-4 strips of uncooked bacon, finely diced

  • 2 cups diced pineapple

  • Warm corn tortillas

Marinade diced pork & bacon overnight with Tacos Al Pastor marinade. Place marinated pork & bacon in 3-4-quart pan, covered. Bring to a low boil then simmer for 60-90 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover the last 30 minutes to thicken. Season with salt if desired. Serve with warm tortillas and diced pineapples for soft tacos. Garnish with diced onions and cilantro if desired.

Tips:

-Best if pork is marinated overnight, however still tasty if this step is skipped. 

-Marinated meat can be cooked in a crockpot on low until fork tender.
