These tacos are so tasty that you won’t even think about them being lean and healthy. The fat and calories are trimmed away by using pork tenderloin, low-fat refried beans and reduced fat sour cream. Make the tacos just how you like them; put all, or just some of the ingredients from the recipe into your delicious handheld meal. Don’t be intimidated by the long list of ingredients, it’s mostly seasonings.
For the tacos:
1. Fill your tortillas with as many of the listed taco ingredients as you like. If using corn tortillas, double up the tortillas before you fill them because they tend to tear when filled.
For the pork tenderloin:
1. Preheat outdoor grill to medium heat (or heat the oven to 400 F).
2. If there is any silver skin on the tenderloin, be sure to cut it off with a sharp knife.
3. Coat the pork tenderloin with the olive oil, and season with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
4. Cook on the grill for about 40 minutes. Be sure to turn the tenderloin in order to brown all sides. If you do this in the oven the cook time will be 40 to 50 minutes.
5. When the tenderloin is cooked remove it from the heat, cover with some foil and let it rest about 10 minutes before slicing.
For the roasted sweet potatoes:
1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Place the sweet potatoes on a sheet pan. (It is not necessary to peel sweet potatoes when they are roasted; but if you don’t like the skin, you will want to peel the sweet potatoes.)
3. Toss the sweet potatoes with the remaining listed sweet potato ingredients, making sure to coat the potatoes evenly.
4. Roast in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes.
For the chipotle sour cream:
1. In a small bowl combine the sour cream, chipotle pepper and the adobo sauce, mix well.
Feel free to customize the toppings to your taste. I like my wrap with avocado, tomato and lettuce while my husband likes the chicken on a bun as a club sandwich. The real key to this recipe is the marinade.
