Reviews for Pineapple Shrimp Tacos
"These were good. I tried both corn and flour tortillas and found I preferred the corn. The pineapple flavor didn't come through as much as I expected but then I found most of the pineapple at the bottom of the pan. Perhaps some larger chunks next time?"
"This was a good recipe. Flour tortillas were used instead of corn. Recipe took longer to make than the 25min prep/cook time listed. Overall, it was easy and nearly everyone liked it."
"These are great!"
"Really loved the flavor. Thought I'd make some Spanish rice to go inside too. Ha! No room at the inn. I'm not sure how they got all the ingredients to fit into a 6" tortilla. I tried a 10" flour(what I had on hand), and couldn't fit. Ate the tortilla on the side, with the rice, and ate the shrimp/pepper mixture alone. Yummmm. Will make again, probably the same way. ;-D"
"These were so good. I used a whole can of pineapple tidbits. I thought the flavors were wonderful. Will make again!"
"I've never been brave enough to try anything but beef or chicken tacos, but the pineapple, shrimp and seasoning are a wonderful combination! We felt it could use a little more pineapple and seasoning though."
