Instructions

For the pork, whisk together orange juice, oil, lime juice, garlic, oregano, salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes. Place tenderloins in a baking dish and pour marinade over top. Cover dish; chill tenderloins until ready to grill, up to 2 hours.

Prepare grill for two-zone grilling, heating one side to medium-high and the other side to medium-low.

Grill tenderloins, covered, over medium-high heat until a thermometer inserted into the centers registers 150°, 12–15 minutes. Remove tenderloins from grill, tent with foil, and let rest while preparing tortillas.

For the tacos, top tortillas with 2 Tbsp. each refried beans and cheese. Place tortillas over medium-low heat and grill just until cheese melts, 1–2 minutes.

Slice tenderloins and arrange on tortillas; serve with Grilled Salsa Roja.

Pour marinade over pork, then turn meat to coat. Refrigerate pork while grill is heating.
