This is a neat snack to make when unexpected friends show up and want to have a visit. While the beer is chilling and conversation has begun in earnest, gather all around the kitchen and begin.
- 3/4 cup salsa verde *
- 1 lb. pork tenderloin
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 2/3 lb. swiss chard, cut into 1 inch strips
- 4-5 slices Havarti Cheese with jalapeno pepper, chopped roughly
- 20 small flour tortillas
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
Preheat the barbecue (it’s that time of year) and score the pork deeply with a paring knife and rub with the cumin, chopped garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper. Grill on high for 4 minutes on each side for medium or until you have the desired doneness. Allow to cool and then slice thinly.
Have another beer……
In a frypan, heat the remaining oil over medium heat and saute the sliced onion until softened. Add the swiss chard and cook for 2 minutes. Stir often until it has wilted. Season LIGHTLY with salt and pepper and transfer immediately to a serving bowl and toss with the havarti cheese until it melts.
In a dry frypan on medium heat, add the tortillas for 30 seconds on each side. Wrap the warm ones in a clean tea towel.
Place the food on the table and let everyone make their own. Enjoy! Yummy!
