Sweet and Spicy Pork Tacos

The sweet? Pineapple.  The spicy? Chipotle peppers.  Don't be weirded out by the addition of pineapple here.  It works really well with the pork and actually soaks up lots of chiptole.  You end up with spicy pineapple chunks in your tacos and that is pretty tasty.

Adapted from Cook's Country Magazine

1 lb boneless pork ribs chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 can chopped pineapple, with 1/2 cup juice reserved
1 tbsp diced chipotles in a adobo
salt and pepper
2 tbsp vegetable oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp cumin

1. Season pork with salt and pepper.  Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large skillet.  Cook pork in skillet until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
2. Add additional tbsp of oil, cumin, and garlic, cook until fragrant.  Add pineapple juice and chipotle, bring to a simmer.  Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until pork is cooked through and sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes.
3. Garnish with cilantro and serve in warmed tortillas.

This is a great quick and easy weeknight meal.  Delicious and easy, what more can you ask for?
