  • 1½ lbs. pork loin, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Suggested Toppings:

  • Monterey Jack, Colby Jack or Cheddar Cheese, shredded

Generously season pork loin strips with chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. In a large skillet, bring the canola oil up to medium-high heat. Cook the pork strips for 5-7 minutes or until cooked all the way through. Remove from pan.

In the same pan, sauté the peppers and onions with salt and pepper for 2-3 minutes. Add the pork back in the pan. Cook peppers, onions and pork for another 1-2 minutes over medium heat.

To serve, place some of the the pork, pepper and onion mixture into each tortilla. Serve with desired toppings.
