Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon plus a pinch of salt, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Zest of 2 limes
  • 6 teaspoons lime juice, divided
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground chipotle pepper divided
  • 1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1 medium white onion, thickly sliced crosswise
  • 1 red or green bell pepper, quartered
  • 1 cup chopped pitted sweet or sour fresh cherries
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup shredded Manchego or Cheddar cheese
  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas, warmed

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Mash 1 teaspoon salt and garlic in a small bowl with a mortar and pestle or a spoon until a paste forms. Mix in lime zest, 2 teaspoons lime juice and 1 teaspoon ground chipotle. Rub the paste all over pork.
  3. Oil the grill rack. Grill the pork, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part reaches 145°F, 13 to 15 minutes. Grill onion and bell pepper, turning occasionally, until charred and tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the pork to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Combine cherries, cilantro, the remaining 4 teaspoons lime juice, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon chipotle and pinch of salt in a bowl. Finely chop one slice of grilled onion and stir into the salsa.
  5. Thinly slice the remaining onion and pepper. Thinly slice the pork. Serve the pork and vegetables with the salsa and cheese on tortillas.
