If ever there was a fusion food, tacos al pastor would be it. Although it looms large in the canon of Mexican tacos, the original recipe was inspired by Lebanese immigrants, who adapted it from shawarma. It typically features pork, but we’re making it veggie-friendly by swapping in chipotle-spiced seitan. The chili’s smokiness works surprisingly well with cubes of sweet pineapple and slices of poblano.
