Pineapple Green Chili Pork Tacos

Who knew that pork and pineapple were a match made in heaven? Together, they’re the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. My whole family love these tacos, and no one complained about having leftovers the next day.  If you have leftovers and want to make something besides tacos, try quesadillas.  Besides being delicious, this is quick to put together. It will definitely become part of the regular rotation at our house.

  1. Great recipe- and reminder to use my crock pot! I already have my dinner planned and groceries purchased for this week, but am bookmarking this now for meal planning next Sunday. You have saved me from baked chicken and sweet potatoes more than once next week!

  2. This looks great. I have a favorite recipe for pineapple black bean burritos already but now that I eat meat, I might want to try this.

  3. wonderful tacos…loved the combo of adding pineapples !

  4. I think I could eat this all day long, because I love such delicious looking things :)

  5. I love the idea of the flavors in this and the fact that it is a crockpot recipe!

  6. I’ve been looking for some crock pot recipes. I think my family is going to love this.

  7. my crock pot is my life!

    these look great!

  8. Is there something productive that could possibly be done with the strained juices from the pork roast? Or is it too fatty to be used as stock?

  9. I don’t think it would be too fatty for stock, but it might depend on which cut of pork roast you used.

  10. Pretty much anything that has “pork” and “green chili” in the title is something I’d like! I love the idea of adding pineapple to the mix.
