Caramelized Pork Tacos w/ Pineapple Salsa

Caramelized Pork Tacos w/ Pineapple Salsa

DSC_9996Oh Tacos. So difficult for me to try to photograph yet so delicious that I can’t help but share.

Tacos are one of my favorite things to make when you’re tight on time. They’re always a crowd pleaser and as you can see with this recipe, the flavor combos are endless. This particular recipe is a new favorite of ours.DSC_9989

 Last week we shared the recipe for the Pineapple Cucumber salsa which is totally a great salsa to make not just for tacos but for chips, a topping for fish, and eating by itself.
As you learned last week, the salsa is incredibly easy to make. These tacos, even though the process involves heat, aren’t that much harder to make. Check it out:

See?!? You can top this with spicy chili sauce or anything you want. Then serve with some tortillas chips and the remaining pineapple salsa and it’s the perfect dinner!

So delicious.
But serious question time. Seriously bloggers, without a freaking taco stand holder thing (technical term), how do you beautifully photograph tacos?!? I commend all of you who have managed the feat.
They’re so delicious though. Ahhh my head will be filled with taco dreams until I make these again.

BUT WAIT!!!
What about that delicious spicy mayo that you see on the tacos? Well, you gotta come back next week to see that recipe.
Trust me, it’s worth the wait and it’s possibly the easiest part of this whole meal. Don’t miss it!

DSC_9930 copy My biggest weakness in life is chips and salsa. Scratch that, it’s just the salsa.

Seriously.

I put salsa on everything. Eggs, salads, rice, fish, chicken, sometimes just a spoon that goes directly into my mouth. I can’t help it.

Red, green, fruity, spicy, canned, fresh, chunky, smooth- never met one I didn’t like.

GIMME ME ALL THE SALSAS!

This particular salsa is probably the easiest thing in the world. THIS one I made a while ago is easy too, but this bad boy only has 5 ingredients (not counting salt because, c’mon).

5 ingredients people!!DSC_9907 copyALWAYSSUMMERBoom. You’re done, and well on your way to happy salsa land. If you’re obsessed with SPICY like me, you can throw in some jalapeño too, which I did.

I made this salsa to put on some delicious caramelized pork tacos *tune in next week for those!* and it was soooo good. But I also ate this with chips and by the spoonful. I think it would also be delicious with some nice light fish or even shrimp!

Possibilites are endless 🙂

ohhh helllooo my fraaands.

Did anyone else have tomato overload at the end of the season? Like I ate cherry tomatoes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for about 2 weeks straight. I loved it, but just explaining the depth of my tomato haul.

After eating so many that I get a belly ache, canning and freezing…one of my favorite things to do is make SALSA!

My hubs and I eat ungodly amounts of salsa. Seriously I put it on eggs, rice, chips (duh) and way too many other things.

This salsa recipe is one of the easiest things a person can make. Cooking skill required on a scale from 1-10…

I only say that because you need to be able to identify ingredients, other than that….easiest. thing. ever.

You need to try this out. Even if you don’t have your own tomatoes or aren’t drowning in any you need to try it.

It’s so good.

Like you know when you go to Mexican restaurants and they give you the house chips and salsa and you eat your body weight in them and then your meal comes and you can’t even look at it?

oh what? Don’t lie…you do it too.

Well this salsa is that good. So I’ll stop talking now and lets get to the good stuff!
