  1. Tacos al Pastor 10 pasilla chilies

  2. 10 guajillo chilies

  3. 1/2 garlic bulb

  4. 1/4 liter white vinegar

  5. 1/4 tsp. cumin powder

  6. 5 cloves

  7. Salt

  8. 1 can pineapple

  9. 2 lbs thinly sliced pork

  10. 1 onion

  11. cilantro

  12. 1 lime

  13. corn tortillas

  14. Remove the stems and seeds from the pasilla and guajillo chilies,

  15. and then slice the peppers into thin vertical pieces. Add the

  16. vinegar, garlic, cloves and cumin to the chilies, and mash these

  17. ingredients into a pulp. Avoid touching this mixture with your bare

  18. hands, since it will immediately burn your skin.

  19. Boil the mixture in a small pot until you make a soft paste. Stir

  20. constantly until you achieve a smooth, albeit slightly chunky

  21. consistency. Allow the contents to cool before you apply the mixture

  22. to the meat.

  23. Dip each strip of pork in the marinade, using a pair of tongs to

  24. avoid contact with your skin. You will need to marinate the strips

  25. of pork for at least 24 hours in advance. Remember to stack the

  26. pork in the mixing bowl so that the marinade can coat each individual

  27. strip of meat.

  28. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or aluminum foil or plastic wrap,

  29. and place the bowl in your refrigerator for at least 6 hours

  30. (overnight is better). Step5 Removed the marinated meat from the

  31. refrigerator and allow it to return to room temperature, which will

  32. take around an hour.

  33. Chop up the onions and cilantro together and place in a small bowl

  34. when you make tacos al pastor.

  35. Fry the meat in a skillet until it is slightly crispy around the

  36. edges and the pork is fully cooked throughout. Add the pineapple

  37. slices to the meat while it cooks.

  38. Chop the meat into small pieces once you have removed it from the

  39. skillet. Serve with the small corn tortillas, with the onion and cilantro mix on top. Slice up the limes and squeeze the juice all

  40. over the tacos al pastor just before serving.
