Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Peel and grate the carrots. Quarter the tomatoes. Thinly slice the scallions. Zest and juice the limes. Remove the husks from the tomatillos; small-dice. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems. In a small bowl, make the cilantro sour cream by combining the sour cream, lime zest, ¾ of the lime juice, ½ the cilantro, a drizzle of olive oil, ½ the spices and S&P. In a medium bowl, make the salad by combining ½ the carrots, ½ the scallions, ⅓ of the cilantro sour cream and S&P. Set the remaining carrots aside in the fridge for lunch.

Cook the pork
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spices and S&P. Sear, 2 to 3 min. per side, until browned. Wipe out and reserve the pan. Transfer the pork to a lined sheet pan and brush with ½ the remaining cilantro sour cream. Roast, 10 to 12 min., until the pork* is golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain. Set ½ the pork and the remaining cilantro sour cream aside in the fridge for lunch.

Toast & bake the tortillas
Quarter ⅓ of the tortillas. On a second lined sheet pan, drizzle with 1 tbsp oil (double for 4 lunch portions); season with S&P. Arrange in a single layer and toast in the oven, flipping halfway, 6 to 8 min., until golden brown and crispy. Once cool, break into pieces and set aside in an airtight container at room temperature for lunch. Stack and tightly wrap the remaining tortillas in a large piece of foil. Bake directly on an oven rack, 6 to 8 min., until heated through.

Make the salsa
In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the remaining scallions, 30 sec. to 1 min., until softened. Add the tomatillos and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 min., until completely softened. Add the remaining lime juice; season with S&P.

Lunch: Finish & serve
When you’re ready for lunch, roughly chop the lettuce, discarding the root end. In a large bowl, make the salad by combining the lettuce, remaining carrots and remaining tomatoes. Add the remaining cilantro sour cream and a drizzle of olive oil; toss well. Divide the salad between your plates. Top with the remaining pork and the tortilla chips. Bon appétit!
