Grilled pork soft tacos with spicy avocado mango salsa recipe

Yields about 8 soft tacos


  • 1 pound boneless pork chops (about 3/4-inch thick)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8-10 small to medium soft flour tortilla shells, warmed


  1. Mix together the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Add pork chops to a large zip-closed bag. Pour olive oil into the bag over the pork. Add spice mix and massage the bag all around to coat the chops with the oil and spices. Marinate for 30 minutes to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat your grill to medium-high. Remove pork chops from bag and grill on both sides until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Allow pork to rest before slicing into strips against the grain. Set aside.
