  • 1 1/2 pounds Smithfield Mesquite Pork Loin Filet
  • 2 ears corn on the cob
  • 16-20 corn tortillas
  • Taco toppings of your choice: shredded lettuce, cheddar cheese, lime juice, hot sauce, sour cream, etc.


  • Preheat the grill to 400 degrees.
  • Slice the pork loin in half, lengthwise, to make the filet thinner so that it will cook quicker. Place both halves on the grill over direct heat.
  • Shuck the corn and rinse. Wrap in foil and place on the grill. Cook for 15 minute, turning halfway through.
  • Cook for 6-7 minutes and flip over. Continue cooking for 6-7 minutes or until a thermometer reads 145 degrees. Remove from the grill and let rest 5 minutes.
  • While the pork is resting, place the tortillas on the grill and cook just until warm and pliable.
  • Chop the pork into bite sized pieces.
  • Slice the corn kernels off the cob.
  • Add a spoonful of pork and corn to each tortilla and top with whatever taco toppings you prefer.
