MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 28, 2014

We had a lot of liquid, even after using a slotted spoon. I should have drained it more, since it was dripping from out tacos. The pineapple flavor wasn't overpowering, but I found I didn't care for it. It was a very easy recipe to make, so hopefully others will have better luck.
