Chorizo Tacos with Pineapple Salsa (Recipe)

The name of this recipe speaks for itself.

Chorizo. Tacos. Pineapple. Salsa

It tastes as good as it sounds and is gorgeous on your plate, to boot.

Like cavorting in a splash of spicy sunshine.

The sweet and spice of the Pineapple Salsa perfectly compliment the complex flavors of mouthwatering One Straw Chorizo.

And since it’s One Straw pork, you know you can feel good about what’s on your plate.

Because our pork is always clean, safe, ethically raised – and SO delicious.

This meal tastes like a dream vacation in the tropics, but is oh-so-easy.

Once you have the vivacious Pineapple Salsa made, putting the rest of the meal together is a breeze.


The salsa is best the day it’s made, but can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days.

And I happen to know that any leftover salsa is delicious on tortilla chips.

I suggest making the salsa first, allowing the flavors to meld as you prepare the chorizo and tortillas.

If you help yourself to a few bites as an appetizer, who’s to know? Or blame you. Haha.

To serve, spoon cooked chorizo and pineapple salsa onto heated tortillas.
