Tacos al Pastor

These sounded good for my first cook of the New Year. Made some refried beans to go along.

Taco ingredients. Oil, garlic, cumin, pepper, ground cloves, Guajillo chiles, pineapple juice, distilled white vinegar, achiote paste, sea salt, 2 .b. pork shoulder, half a pineapple, red onion and corn tortillas.



Heated up the spices, liquids and the anchiote paste.





Put in our Ninja and pureed until smooth. Sliced the pork and marinated for 8 hours.



Grilled the onion and pineapple.





Then the thinly sliced pork.



Beans just took a few minutes.



Combined the meat, onion and pineapple.



Toasted the tortillas and topped with some fresh cilantro.



Very tasty. The meat had wonderful flavor and was very tender. Will be doing these again soon. Hope you all are having a great start to the new year. Thanks for looking.

What a great way to start off the new year! Excellent looking al pastor tacos, Cliff! Did you use Tony and Maribel's refried bean recipe?

Thanks everyone.

Did you use Tony and Maribel's refried bean recipe?
Yes Ed. Failed to mention that. It's the only refried bean recipe I use. It's easy and delicious. Their rice recipe is equally as good. Here.

How do you make beans like that?
Hey Chris. See the link Clint posted above. That's it.

Probably like this, but I'll like to see Cliff's mods
No mods Clint except I used a half onion because it was very small.

Cliff, not to be a Debbie Downer or anything but someday all those little yellow cups will contain your daily prescriptions.;)

But hopefully you'll still be making great al pastor!
