These tacos use pork tenderloin, marinated in a spicy sauce then grilled on the BBQ and topped with toppings of your choice. This is a quick dinner idea that everyone loves. Try this same recipe with grilled boneless chicken breasts, too!

Ingredients

Marinade:

  • 1/2 cup chili sauce (I used Heinz™ chili sauce with chunky sweet peppers)
  • 3 Tbsp molasses
  • 2 Tbsp chipotle Tabasco sauce
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 lb pork tenderloins
  • 10-12 soft tortillas or hard shells

Toppings:

  • grated cheddar cheese
  • iceburg lettuce, chopped
  • avocado, diced
  • tomatoes, diced
  • onion, diced
  • red pepper, diced
  • jalapeno, diced
  • salsa
  • sour cream

Instructions

  1. Combine the chili sauce, molasses, Tabasco sauce and chili powder in a small bowl.
  2. Prepare the pork tenderloins by removing the silverskin and then butterfly them, by cutting down the centre almost, but not all the way through.
  3. Lay the tenderloins flat in a large, shallow dish. Spread half the marinade over the top then turn the tenderloins over and brush the other side. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4-6 hours.
  4. When ready to cook, heat grill or bbq. Grill pork until it reaches 150° Remove from grill and let rest 5-10 minutes while you prepare the toppings and heat your taco shells or tortillas (I like to throw the tortillas on the bbq grill for a minute on each side).
  5. Slice pork into thin slices and place in a bowl alongside your toppings. Enjoy!
