  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the pork and cook until browned, 4 minutes on each side. Transfer to a cutting board and let cool; cut into thin strips.
  2. In the same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and their juice, the garlic chipotle and cumin and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes; stir in the pork and chopped cilantro.
  3. Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Brush one side of each tortilla with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Working in bathces, cook the tortillas oiled side down until grill marks form, 1 to 2 minutes.
