Quick Tacos al Pastor
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
I never knew you could pair tacos with pineapple until we lived in Mexico for a while! Delicious! This recipe did justice to what we ate on the streets of Guadalajara!
Ran out of shells (we made a double batch for two nights of meals) so hunt and I had as a taco salad, it was wonderful!
It's NOT al pastor. It's processed meat in a taco shell.
How is that pork packaged or sold? Already cooked? Sorry but I don't recognize it? Brand? I don't want to use chicken or anything else but don't have a clue what kind of cut. Looks good and different.
I have made this twice now--son says it's now his favorite kind of Taco! Husband and son said "It's different-not the same old taco". Because of those 2 guys, I had to double the recipe but followed it exactly, just in double proportions. We did use Verde Sauce, onions, pineapple, and shredded cheese as toppings--but not the cilantro, since both guys don't care for it. I couldn't find the "Pork Roast au Jus" as such in my store so I purchased 15 oz. containers of Kroger "Pork Carnitas"-, which I had to slice but very tender and I would use this product again. Easy and rather quick to make--could be made on a weeknight after a day's work.
Gramcayo this recipe uses the red enchilada sauce.Sue StetzelTaste of Home Magazine
does anyone know if the red or green enchilada sauce was used?
What a fun and different way to prepare a taco! It was very good! I used an entire can of crushed pineapple (divided in half for each part of the recipe) and an entire 10 oz can of enchilada sauce. The toppings (cilantro and onion) make this taco! So don't be afraid to sprinkle a good amount of onion and cilantro on top! We didn't use any of the optional toppings as this was good as is!
Great way to enhance a Very good Taco. We eat a LOT of Tacos, Burritos, Enchiladas, etc., and really like this recipe!
This sounds so good. I will be changing it up, but only because I don't use pork, that being said I will use chicken thighs and I know my family and I will really enjoy eating this for Taco Tues. Thank you for sharing
