Smoky, sweet and spicy marinated pork topped with sauteed pineapple makes a mouthwatering pork adobado taco.


  • 1 pound pork butt
  • 3 tablespoons canned chipotles, chopped with the adobo sauce
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of red chili flakes
  • 1/2 onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Dash cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 corn tortillas


  • Cilantro
  • Diced onion
  • Salsa verde (green salsa)
  • Sautéed pineapple (I used a can of pineapple rings and sliced it in half sections)


  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients (everything on the list minus the pork and the topping ingredients) in a blender. Blend until its bright red and smooth. You can give it a taste and adjust as you please for spice and taste.
  2. Marinade the sliced pork overnight (or at least 24 hours).
  3. When ready to eat. Take out the meat, saute in a pan for a few minutes until the meat is caramelized. Take meat out of the pan and chop it up into bite-sized pieces.
  4. NOW THIS PART IS IMPORTANT. DO NOT SKIP as this brings you to taco nirvana. Take the bits, throw it BACK into the pan and carmelize further, put 1-2 tablespoons of leftover adobado marinade. Give it a toss and make sure it’s all sauced up.
  5. Saute pineapple sections in the same pan after you remove the meat.
  6. Take the meat. Microwave/warm your corn tortillas. Top meat with what I call the “adobado trifecta”: diced onions, cilantro & pineapple. I also add on a little salsa verde.
  7. ENJOY.
