Pork Tortillas with Mango Pineapple Salsa

I had a bunch of limes leftover from making a key lime pie and there were also some tortillas in the fridge that needed to be used up. Looking in our fruit bowl, I spied 2 mangos and a pinapple. I also had some ground pork in the fridge that I had purchased on sale. Hmmmm....

It was dinner swap night. My night to prepare dinner for my family and my friend`s family and I wanted to make something delicious that the kids would really enjoy as well as something that was easy to prepare and transport.

The result of all these criteria? Pork Tortillas with a Mango Pineapple Salsa!

I reserved some of the mango and pineapple mix minus the cilantro and onion to the side as I knew my oldest wouldn't be a fan of the stronger flavors. Other than that, no adjustments! Everyone enjoyed the citrus flavours and the fun of making their own tortillas. Success!

Pork Tortillas with Mango Pineapple Salsa
(Prep Time: 15 minutes/Total Time: 30 minutes. Serves 8.)

2 large mangos, seeded, peeled and cut into small chunks
1 small pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks
1 red onion, minced fine and divided
1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped and divided
juice from 3 limes, divided
vegetable oil for the pan
3 pounds ground pork
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
16 medium sized flour tortillas

Make salsa by combining mango, pineapple, 1/2 cup of the cilantro, 1/2 of the onion and 1/2 of the lime juice. Set aside.

Heat enough oil in a large skillet over medium high heat so that it swirls and coats the pan. Add the remaining onions and cook until soft. Add in pork and continue to cook until no longer pink. Season with salt and pepper.

Remove from the heat. Add in remaining cilantro and lime juice. Stir in cheese. Check mixture and add more salt and pepper if needed.

Heat tortillas in the microwave for 45 seconds. Serve with pork mixture and salsa.
