Whether is Tuesday or Friday, I will not say no to tacos. I’ve said it before and I will say it again. I love Tacos! The possibilities are endless and I feel like nowadays, anything goes. With all the different combinations of proteins and toppings, you could have a different taco every day for I don’t even know for how long…. A while! These Pork Carnitas Tacos and a Sweet Potato & Pineapple Pico are going to be a favorite of yours. The pork is going to give you that authentic carnitas flavor, while the sweet potato and pineapple pico are going to lend a sweet & spicy twist to the taco. All while giving you all the health benefits of eating sweet potato.
