Pineapple Pork Tacos

Keagan by far in our house is the pickiest eater, and let me just say... she had TWO. Yes folks, that's right... TWO!

Pineapple Pork Tacos
Estimated Cost: $5.00 for four servings
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, juice reserved
1/2 cup sour cream (If you use light, stir in 1 tablespoon olive oil)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
juice of one fat lime
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 lb. pork chops, about 3/4 inch thick
1 (6 ounce) bag coleslaw mix
1/3 cup sliced radishes
12 corn tortillas
1 tablespoon butter
Preheat grill for medium hot cooking. In a medium bowl, combine the JUICE of the pineapple, sour cream, chili powder, cumin, lime juice, and cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove 1/4 cup of mixture and rub all over pork chops. Let stand for five minutes. Grill pork chops, about 4-5 minutes per side until only slightly pink in center. Let rest for five minutes, and slice into strips. Meanwhile, combine crushed pineapple with slaw and radishes and reserved sour cream mixture. (Grill tortillas about 1 minute per side and brush with butter and wrap tightly in tinfoil.) Assemble tacos with tortillas, slaw, and pork chops.

yes, this is Barb's version of grilling... too whimpy to light the outside BBQ

Grilling the tortillas. Yum.

This recipe came from Prudence Pennywise. Bless her heart!
