Ingredients

2 lbs Ground Pork (80/20)*

1 Pineapple, peeled and cut lengthwise into 4 pieces

1 oz Achiote Paste

1 Tbsp Ancho Chile Powder (or chili powder)

4 cloves Garlic, peeled

1/2 Tbsp Garlic Powder

1/2 Tbsp Dried Oregano

1/2 Tbsp Ground Cumin

1/2 Tbsp Kosher Salt

Dash of Ground Cloves (optional)

4 oz can Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce

2 Tbsp (30g) White Vinegar

Directions

Toast the pineapple on both sides in a large skillet over medium heat. It should take 2-3 minutes per side to start browning. Set aside.

Increase the heat to medium-high and add the ground pork. Brown both sides before mincing/fully cooking.

While the pork cooks, add half the pineapple in a food processor with the remaining ingredients. Blend on low for 30-60 seconds and high for 1-2 minutes until smooth.

Once the pork is fully cooked, add the sauce and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until the sauce thickens and begins to caramelize around the edges of the pan, about 4-6 minutes.

Cut the second half of the pineapple into bite size pieces and add to the finished pork.

Serve with warmed corn tortillas, diced white onion, cilantro, salsa verde, and lime wedges.
