Alpine Tacos

Comment on this recipe

This goes best with soft flour tortillas, but hard shell may be more to your taste. Load 'em up to your liking and drizzle with oil-based Italian dressing. Ken's Steakhouse Zesty Italian works wonderfully, but again, if you have a favorite brand, use it.

Ingredients

1-1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, plain
3 medium size tomatoes
6 leaves Romaine lettuce
6 green onions

Instructions

Prepare pork tenderloin per package directions to achieve desired tenderness. Allow loin to cool when done. Chop meat coarsely. Dice tomatoes, Romaine lettuce and green onions. Makes approximately 12 tacos.
