Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless pork ribeye chops, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons lime juice, divided
  • 1 teaspoon smoked or regular paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained

Directions

In a large bowl, toss pork with 2 tablespoons lime juice and seasonings; let stand 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix beans, pineapple with reserved juice, onion, cilantro and remaining lime juice.
Thread pork onto four metal or soaked wooden skewers. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Grill kabobs, covered, over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally.
Remove pork from skewers; serve in tortillas. Top with bean mixture and, if desired, sour cream. Yield: 4 servings.
