Wonderful tacos…loved the combo of adding pineapples! ~ Sonia
Besides being delicious, this recipe is quick and easy to put together. Just throw everything in the slow cooker and walk away. In four to five hours, dinner is done!
I highly recommend serving these tacos with some homemade pineapple coleslaw–or any kind of coleslaw–but any of your favorite taco toppings will work just fine! Avocados and limes for squeezing are also popular at my house.
And you can use corn or flour tortillas. It’s totally up to you!
My whole family loves these tacos, and no one complains if we have leftovers the next day. Although we rarely do in a house full of hungry teenage boys.
If you do happen to have leftovers and want to make something besides tacos, try quesadillas or burritos. These sweet and spicy pork tacos are a favorite recipe in the regular dinner rotation at our house.
Don’t wait for Taco Tuesday to make these amazing tacos! They’ll be a hit any night of the week.
We hope you love them as much as we do!
