Pork Fajita Salad
Servings: 6 servings
1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
4 boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick, about 1 1/2 pounds)
2 1/4 cups chicken broth
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
2 ripe avocados, peeled
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro or parsley
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 jar (11 ounces) salsa
2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
Sliced ripe olives and green onions
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first four ingredients.
Add pork chops. Seal and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or
overnight, turning occasionally. Drain, discarding marinade.
Grill chops, uncovered, over medium heat for 12 to 14 minutes or
until juices run clear, turning once. Thinly slice pork; set aside.
In a saucepan, bring broth to a boil; stir in rice. Return to a
boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until rice
is tender. Cool. Meanwhile, for guacamole, mash avocados with
lemon juice. Stir in the tomato, jalapeno, cilantro, and onion.
In a 5-quart glass salad bowl, layer lettuce, beans, cheese, pork,
and guacamole. Spread with salsa. Combine rice and sour cream;
spread over salsa. Garnish with olive and green onions.
