Ingredients

Spicy Pineapple Slaw

Instructions

Spicy Pineapple Slaw:

  1. In a large bowl, toss together cabbage, onion, cilantro, pineapple, and jalapeno.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, lime juice, honey, salt, and pepper. Add vinaigrette to cabbage mixture and toss to combine. Let sit for 10-15 minutes. Before serving, toss again.

Assemble tacos:

  1. Warm tortillas quickly in a dry skillet or over an open flame on a gas stove (keep a close eye on them).
  2. Fill tortillas with pork carnitas and top with spicy pineapple slaw (I like to double stack my tortilla shells in case one breaks).
  3. Top with your favorite toppings!

Notes

  • For the pork carnitas, I love making my Mexican Slow Cooker Smoky Pork Carnitas.
  • To make sriracha mayo, whisk together 2 parts mayo with 1 part sriracha. If desired, you can thin it out with a little lime juice or water.
