Grilled pineapple gives these fajitas a different, fun twist people will love. If you have time, allow the pork to marinate for up to an hour.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced pineapple
  • 1 envelope fajita seasoning mix
  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 4 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and sliced

Directions

  • 1. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set pineapple aside. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine seasoning mix and reserved juice; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, place the red pepper, onion and pineapple on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Fold foil around mixture and seal tightly.
  • 3. Prepare grill for indirect heat. Drain and discard marinade from pork. Grill pork and foil packet, covered, over indirect medium heat for 20-35 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the pork reads 145° and vegetables are tender. Remove from the grill. Cover pork and let stand for 5 minutes.

"I think this could use a much longer marinating time. Not enough seasoning for me."

"Good! I wasnt sure how I would like the pineapple but it added a nice tropical flavor to the fajitas. I realized at home I had forgot to buy fajita seasoning, so I just used taco seasoning ~ it turned out fine. We omited the avocados but made fresh guacamole to go with and also served w/ a pineapple & mango chipotle salsa. Very yummy!"
