Author Notes: This is what I would sell out of my food truck. Combine hot smoked and sweet smoked paprika for less heat but don’t opt out of smoked paprika. The smokey flavor makes this unforgettable. - ourlastsupper

- 2 tablespoons hot smoked paprika
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon minced rosemary
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
- 1 diced mango
- 1 diced red bell pepper
- 1/2 - 1 diced jalepeno, depending on your preference for heat
- 1 cup chopped cilantro
- Juice of 1 lime
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Combine first six ingredients to form a rub.
- Cut tenderloin lengthwise into about 8 long strips about 1/4" thick. Rub the paprika mixture onto the strips of pork and place into a covered dish. Refrigerate for at least three hours or overnight.

Flat bread (Adapted from Cook's Illustrated to remove extra steps)
- 2 1/2 cups bread flour
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 1/4 teaspoons rapid rise yeast
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup water at room temperature
- 1/4 cup whole milk yogurt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, for brushing onto flat bread
- Salt, for sprinkling over flat bread
- Whisk the first five ingredients in the bowl of a standing mixer. Add the water, yogurt and 1 tablespoon of olive oil and combine with the dough hook on low speed for about 30 seconds. Increase the speed to medium and knead for about 8 minutes until the dough is smooth and glossy.
- Knead the dough on a clean work surface for about a minute. Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover. Place the bowl in a warm spot for about 45 minutes to an hour or until the dough has doubled in bulk.
- Turn out the dough onto a clean work surface and cut into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball under the palm of your hand. Let the dough balls rest for 10 minutes.
- On a lightly floured board, roll out each dough ball into a disk about 6" in diameter.
- Heat a cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Gently stretch the dough abut 1" larger and place it in the pan. Cook on one side until bubbles start to form on the surface of the dough, about 30 seconds. Flip the bread and cook until the bottom is deep golden brown in spots, about 2 minutes. Flip the bread again and cook until the bottom is deep golden brown in spots. Remove from the pan and lightly brush with oilve oil and sprinkle lightly with salt.
