- 2 teaspoons salt, divided
- 1-1/2 teaspoons pepper, divided
- 1-1/2 pounds boneless pork loin, cut into thin strips
- 1 cup chopped seeded plum tomatoes

- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup plus 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro, divided
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped

- 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
- 3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- 6 flour tortillas (12 inches), warmed
- 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained

- In a large shallow dish, combine the limeade concentrate, oil, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; add pork. Turn to coat; cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
