Why I Love This Recipe

I found this online, and it is healthy and so good.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1-pound lean pork tenderloin, trimmed of visible fat and cut into ½-1-inch thick strips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (optional)
1/4 cup water

1 lime, juiced

16 yellow corn tortillas (6-inch), warmed

2 cups prepared fresh salsa

1 medium ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced

Optional garnishes:
Plain Greek yogurt
Shredded cheddar cheese
Shredded lettuce
Fresh cilantro
Black beans


Heat 1½ teaspoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add half of the pork; cook and stir 5 minutes or until browned and 145°F; set aside. Repeat with remaining olive oil and pork. Return browned pork to the skillet, add walnuts and reduce heat to low.

In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and cayenne pepper; add to the skillet with water and lime juice, stirring until evenly coated. Simmer 5 minutes or until heated through.

Spoon pork-walnut mixture evenly into warmed corn tortillas, top with fresh salsa, avocado, desired garnishes and serve.
