Al Pastor tacos from an air fryer? As good as the original, and a lot healthier too! Pair with grain-free tortillas for true scrumptiousness.
Freeze whatever meat you're using for at least 20 minutes to up to 4 hours. Or thaw until partially frozen. Slice thinly.
Slice pineapple into rings and core the center. Mince a small amount (about 1/4 cup) for marinating. Or use a can of pineapple slices or rings in juice.
Place meat in a medium bowl and add chipotle in adobo (or just sauce), oregano, cumin, achiote (or ancho chile powder), 1/4 cup pineapple juice (from canned pineapple) or minced pineapple, 1 Tbsp. brown sugar (or other sweetener), and salt. Cover and refrigerate for an hour or more.
Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F for 5 minutes. Pull out air fryer drawer and lightly spray basket with cooking spray.
Place marinated meat in single layer in air fryer and cover with pineapple rings. sprinkle 1 Tbsp. brown sugar over pineapple.
Cook at 390 degrees F for 8 minutes. You may have to cook several batches.
Serve with warm tortillas, preferable grain-free, with pico de gallo, lime wedges, and Avocado Cream (recipe) or guacamole. Enjoy pineapple in taco or on the side.
