Tacos al Pastor

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

Al pastor veggie tacos with grilled onion & pineapple, salsa verde, and a side of beans.

Short History: Al Pastor is based on the shawarma brought by Lebanese immigrants to Mexico! A wave of Lebanese immigrants to Mexico, mainly Christians such as the Maronites who have no religious dietary restrictions on eating pork, arrived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and introduced the Arab version, shawarma. In the 1960s, Mexican-born progeny of these immigrants began opening their own restaurants and combining their heritage with Mexican cuisine. Al pastor features a flavor palate that combines traditional Middle Eastern spices with those indigenous to central Mexico.

Reheating Instructions: Warm the filling over medium heat for 3 minutes. or microwave* on high for 2 minutes. Toast the tortillas and fill.
