Tacos de Alambre is a popular Mexican dish that consists of meat, bacon, bell peppers, onions, cheese and salsa. It's mild, yet bursting with flavour!
4 pcs of pork escalopes (thinly sliced pork)
5 slices of bacon
¼ white onion, diced
½ bell pepper, diced
½ poblano pepper, diced
3 pcs tortilla
60 gr gouda cheese, grated
2 tbsp canola oil
2 tomatoes, cored
¼ white onion
1 tbsp canned chipotle adobo
1 clove garlic, root end removed
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
Salt, to taste
Heat a dry frying pan (no oil) over high heat. Once hot, add your tomatoes (whole), onion and garlic to the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes or until charred (blackened skins). Remove the pan from heat and place the charred tomatoes, onion and garlic into a blender with the chipotle in adobo. Blend all ingredients together. Season your salsa with salt and finish with chopped cilantro.
First, cut the pork into small cubes (about 1cm x 1cm) and slice the bacon into small strips.
Heat a medium frying pan on high. Once your pan is hot, add your bacon and cook for about 3 minutes. Next, leaving your bacon in the pan, bring your heat down to medium and add your pork cubes and onions. Stirring throughout, cook for about 4 minutes. Add the poblano and bell pepper to the mix, cooking for 2 more minutes. Bring your heat down to low and add the cheese to melt.
Heat your tortillas placing them on a dry (no oil) comal or frying pan over medium heat and cooking them for about 30 seconds on each side.
Finish tacos with salsa. Enjoy!
