Tacos Al Pastor

While we were in Madrid we finally got tired of eating Tapas, so we ventured off to find Mexican food. We would eat Mexican food everyday if we could. Unfortunately, here in Florida the Mexican food is not like what we grew up on in TX! We found multiple places in Spain that served tacos that I considered Tex-Mex. Here is my favorite!

Tacos Al Pastor

2 guajillo chili
4 ancho chilies
1 onion (chopped)
4 slices pineapple (1/2 inch thick, chopped)
1 can of chipotle chili in adobo sauce
2 tablespoon vinegar
8 cloves garlic
4 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 7 - 8 lbs piece of pork

4 slices pineapple (1/4 inch thick)
* corn tortillas
1 onion (chopped)
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
* lime wedges

1. Bring the guajillo and ancho chilies to boil in a pot with some water.
2. Turn off the heat and let the chilies rehydrate for about an hour.
3. Puree the chilies, onion, 4 slices of pineapple, chipotle chili in adobo sauce, vinegar, garlic, salt, oregano and cumin.

4. Place thawed out piece of pork into crock pot. Cut into 1 1/2 inch slices, but only about half way down the piece.
5. Cover the pork in the sauce completely and let it cook in the crockpot for 7-8 hours

6. Shred the pork and mix in the sauce along with some chopped pineapple.
10. Serve in tortillas with chopped sweet onions and cilantro a lime wedge. (and tomatoes if you like)
