We tried a new recipe that we liked. We decided that we could eat it maybe once a month.
1 pound boneless pork loin, cut into 1x1x1/4-inch strips
1 (1.25 ounce) taco seasoning mix
1 TBS oil
1 cup salsa
1 cup canned spicy chili beans, undrained
1/4 cup apricot preserves
1 (4.6 ounce) package taco shells
10 pitted ripe olives, sliced
5 green onions, chopped.
1. In shallow bowl, combined pork and taco seasoning mix, toss to coat.
2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add pork: cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or until no longer pink.
3. Stir in salsa, beans and preserves. Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.
4. Meanwhile, heat taco shells according to package directions. To serve, spoon 1/3 cup pork mixture into each taco shell; top with olives and onions.
(I didn't use the apricot preserves. I used flour shells and let everyone make their own taco at the table. cheese, olives and chopped onions were available. we thought sourcream would be excelent with this also)
