My family raves about this moist pork with smoked paprika and pineapple. I dish it up next to brown rice and a salad of avocado and tomatoes. —E Gelesky, Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania

  • 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
  • 1/2 cup canned unsweetened pineapple tidbits plus 1 tablespoon reserved juice
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 flour tortillas (6 to 8 inches), warmed
  • Reduced-fat sour cream or plain yogurt, optional


  1. 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.
  2. Thread pork onto 4 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.
  3. Remove pork from skewers; serve in tortillas. Top with bean mixture, and sour cream if desired.
