I'm typing this up about two hours after I created this one, and it turned out really well. I made sure to keep the pork itself fairly spicy as opposed to sweet so the pecans would really come out. I served mine with endive, cheddar cheese, and sour cream. I'm sure over time I'll find a better sauce for it but sour cream is a good standby - it's always good at neutralizing flavours, especially in dishes like this one where you get bombarded with some many flavours at once. Hope you like it!

  • (2) Pork Chops, centre cut
  • (4) Soft Taco shells, warmed
  • (1) Belgian Endive, sliced
  • Dry White Wine, 1/2 cup
  • Ancho Chili Powder, 2 tsp
  • Ground Cumin, 2 tsp
  • Chili Powder, 1 tsp
  • Ground Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp
  • Ground Ginger, 1/2 tsp
  • Cheddar Cheese, 1/2 cup grated
  • Pecans, 1/2 cup chopped
  • Sour Cream, 2 tbsp
  • Sugar, 1 tsp

Add 2 tsp of butter to a hot pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Combine your spices and coat each side of your pork chops, laying them in the hot butter. Allow a crust to form (~ 2 minutes), then turn to crust the other side. The pan should be near dry by the time the second side crusts. Add another teaspoon of butter and the white wine to the pan, then turn the heat down to medium. Cover and cook, turning every two minutes until cooked to your preference. Remove the pork from the heat and allow to rest for two minutes. In the meantime, add the pecans to the pan liquid and scrape together with the bits in the pan. Add the sugar and cook until the pecans have candied. Remove from heat and slice the pork into strips. Add sour cream, endive, pork, and pecans to taco shells and serve.

Makes 4 tacos
