1 tablespoon lime juice
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1/2 cup chopped, fresh cilantro

Lime wedges, for garnish

In a bowl, mix together the onion, tomato, jalapeno, lime juice, vinegar, cilantro, sugar and 2 teaspoons of the oil. Season with the salt and pepper; set aside.

In a medium skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Season leftover pork (or chicken) lightly with salt, pepper and the chili powder. Add meat to skillet, saute to heat through.
