How to Make It

Step 1

Remove stems and seeds from chiles. Combine chiles and water in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 1 hour. Drain well, reserving 2 tablespoons of soaking liquid. Combine the chiles, reserved soaking liquid, lime juice, salt, and garlic in a blender, and process until smooth.

Step 2

Trim fat from pork; place pork in a shallow dish. Pour chile mixture over pork; cover and chill 1-1/2 hours.

Step 3

Drain pork, reserving the marinade. Place pork on a rack coated with cooking spray, and place rack in a shallow roasting pan. Brush the reserved marinade over pork, and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 160 degrees. Set pork aside, and keep warm.

Step 4

Wrap tortillas tightly in foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cut the pork diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Arrange one-eighth of the pork slices and 2 tablespoons Apple-Avocado Salsa in center of each tortilla. Fold bottom half of tortilla over filling, and fold sides over filling.

Step 5

Top each fajita with 2 tablespoons Apple-Avocado Salsa, and garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired. Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 fajitas).
