Ingredients

1 large white onion, halved
1 pineapple, peeled, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup guajillo chile powder
3 garlic cloves, halved
2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano (preferably Mexican)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 small chipotle chiles and 2 teaspoons adobo from canned chipotle chiles in adobo
1 2 1/2-to 3-pound boneless pork loin, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Corn tortillas, cotja cheese and lime wedges, for serving

Directions

Make the marinade: Chop 1 onion half. Chop 2 pineapple rounds, discarding core; cover and chill remaining pineapple. Place chopped onion and chopped pineapple in blender. Add orange juice, vinegar, chile powder, garlic, salt, oregano, cumin, chipotle chiles and adobo. Puree marinade until smooth. Place pork in large resealable plastic bag. Add marinade and seal bag, releasing excess air. Toss pork around in marinade to coat. Chill at least 6 hours and up to 1 day.

Heat your grill to medium-high. Grill remaining pineapple until warm and slightly charred, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Grill pork until slightly charred and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer pineapple and pork to work surface; chop pineapple into 1/2-inch chunks, discarding cores. Chop pork. Toss to combine.

Chop the rest of the onion and toss in a bowl with cilantro.

To assemble tacos, put some of the pork/pineapple mixture on a tortilla and top with onion/cilantro mixture and a sprinkling of cheese. Serve immediately.
