    • In a small dish, combine spices. Rub the spice blend onto both sides of the pork chops. In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, add the vegetable oil and cook the pork chops for 5-6 minutes per side, or until an instant read thermometer reaches 145°F. Allow the pork to rest at least 5 minutes before slicing into ½” strips.

    • To serve: in each taco, scoop ¼ cup of the black bean salsa onto a tortilla and top with 2-3 strips of sliced pork. Serve two tacos per person.

  • Tips

    Reserve the remaining black bean salsa to serve as a snack or side with Mission® Tortilla Chips.
