Another taco recipe? Don’t mind if I do!

I was slightly skeptical about putting fruit on pork tenderloin… or fruit with any kind of meat for that matter. I know we served pineapple on the ham for Easter, but I didn’t eat it as a combo. But, I’m never one to pass on trying a new food! I’m glad I gave it a shot, because it was delicious!

I kept the rest of the toppings simple: romaine and red onion! Usually I want sour cream (aka Greek yogurt in my house) on tacos, but the pineapple was juicy enough that it substituted for it. The other taco I swapped the pineapple out for Greek Yogurt and a bit of cheddar cheese, prematurely anticipating I’d only want one pineapple taco. I was wrong!

This recipe is great to reheat, and makes about 8 4 oz servings. Perfect for lunch or dinner!
