  • Sour cream
  • Pico de gallo

Method of Preparation


  1. To prepare the recipe, cook tomato on a ridged grill pan over medium-high heat until it becomes slightly blackened, which will take you about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool until you can easily handle it. Peel off skin and remove its seeds.
  2. Now boil a small pot of water. Add guajillo and ancho chile pepper, cook until the peppers are a little softened, which will take you about 5 minutes. Drain the water and keep the peppers aside.
  3. Then combine tomato flesh, softened chile peppers, 2 slices pineapple, orange juice, quartered onion, vinegar, chipotle peppers, salt, garlic, cloves, cumin seeds, and oregano in a blender; blend until all the ingredients become smooth.
  4. Now arrange pork slices in a glass or ceramic baking dish. Then add the blended spices mixture over pork, while ensuring that all sides are evenly coated. Then cover the baking dish with plastic wrap.
  5. Marinate the pork in the refrigerator for about 4 hours to overnight.
  6. Then cook remaining pineapple slices on a ridged grill pan over medium-high heat until they are slightly blackened and soft, which will take you about 5 minutes per side. Then chop the pineapple into small pieces.
  7. Now wipe out the grill pan and preheat over medium-high heat and cook marinated pork in the hot pan, turning once, until browned, which will take you about 4 to 5 minutes.
  8. Chop pork coarsely into small pieces.
  9. To assemble the nachos platter, add a spoonful of cooked pork in a plate, add pineapple, chopped onion, and cilantro. Then top it with onions, guacamole, avocado slices, nacho chips, sour cream, pico de gallo, cilantro, and your favourite salsa.

Have gone a few times now and have only ordered tacos and nachos but they've been great !! Service is ok but it's fast food !! So five stars for the food

This place opened (again kinda) this week.  They were trying their hardest at customer service. They achieved it.  


My food was perfect.  I went for the nachos with chicken and just about everything else. The refried beans were very good. The chicken was decent. I had guacamole on mine and that was superb by itself. They added just the right amount of cheese and they melted it on the chips.  


I had a great time and refill on the drinks was free if you ask.  (Behind the counter)


There used to be a Chronic in the shopping center on the opposite corner down the street but this one seems better.  


Apparently they have potato tacos so I must come back for those.  


For a newly opened place they were off to a great start.
