    Pork and Spicy Fig Preserve Tacos

    This sweet and spicy pork is delicious served in warm corn tortillas topped with queso fresco and cilantro. This dish tastes similar to an Asian sweet and sour pork, but with a spicy Mexican kick.


    Ingredients
    2
    jalapeño peppers, stemmed
    1
    tablespoon
    Olive Oil
    4
    New York pork chops (boneless top loin chops), diced
    1
    teaspoon
    kosher salt, plus extra to taste
    1/4
    cup
    chopped onion
    2
    cloves
    garlic, minced
    1/2
    cup
    Bonne Maman fig preserves
    *
    corn tortillas
    *
    queso fresco, crumbled
    *
    Chopped Cilantro
    Directions
    Roast the jalapeño peppers in a hot skillet and until blackened, about 5 minutes. Flip them over and roast the other sides for an additional 4 to 5 minutes.
    Place roasted peppers in a plastic bag, close the bag and allow the peppers to steam until the skins loosen, about 10 minutes. Peel the skins off and discard. Chop the jalapeño peppers and reserve.
    Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the diced pork and salt and cook, stirring, until the pork is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
    Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and chopped jalapeño and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
    Add preserves and additional salt to taste. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes until pork has browned and caramelized.
    Heat corn tortillas on a griddle. Place pork mixture in tortillas and serve with queso fresco and cilantro.
