  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 lb. 1/4-inch-thick pork loin cutlets, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons chile powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 8 (6”) flour or corn tortillas, warmed
  • 1 avocado, halved and sliced lengthwise
  • 8 lime wedges
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • Fresh salsa, for serving
  • Sour cream, for serving
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

In a large skillet, bring 1 tablespoon of oil up to medium high heat. Cook pork slices with half the chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper for 1-3 minutes per side (less cooking time needed for very thinly sliced pork). Remove from pan; cover and keep warm. In the same pan, add remaining oil, onions, pepper, remaining chile powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Saute for 4-5 minutes until slightly soft.

Serve pork mixture in tortillas. Serve with avocado on top squeezed with lime wedge. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
