(Late) Early Cinco de Mayo

Since I am in Texas, and thus the closest foodstalker to Mexico, I thought I should probably celebrate Cinco de Mayo on more than just the cinco this year. Since the actual day fell on a Tuesday this year, my group hit up our Tuesday Tradition- Terlingua Border Cafe for half priced fajita night! I will save that review for another Tuesday since I don’t have any pictures, but suffice it to say, it must be good if we keep coming back every week!

So, on the quatro de Mayo, I decided to start the celebration a little early with these Lime-Cilantro Pork Tacos. I have recently started basing my weekly meals on what is on sale at Central Market for the week- this particular week featured pork tenderloin, so I did a quick search and landed on this recipe. It just so happened to have three of my favorite ingredients in the title, so how could I go wrong?

 

Onions, jalapenos, and garlic going to town. Note the terrible knife skills.

Bowl of pork, glass of wine, smell of onions sauteing- perfection.

Ta-da!

Ta-da!

I didn’t take any pictures of the actual finished product- if you thought it all looked the same color in the picture above, you should’ve seen it wrapped in a corn tortilla. What it lacked in visual presence though, it made up for in taste. I just love the combo of lime and cilantro. I ate this as leftovers for several days afterward and I enjoyed it every time.
