    The best recipe for pork tacos! My husband said it is probably the best thing I've ever made! I couldn't believe it!

    This was very good! It looked great although I was a little afraid that it would be too spicy for my 8-year-old daughter. It wasn't at all spicy. In fact, my daughter said it was as tasty as her very favorite dish, fish tacos I will definitely make this again. I didn't make the pineapple salsa, we just topped with standard taco toppings.

    Super-yummy-deelish! Instead of using pineapple in the salsa, I used fresh peaches...and it was finger-licking good! I also used flour tortillas instead of corn. I'll be making this recipe again...sooo good!

    Very good recipe! The only thing we changed was that we used flour tortillas instead of corn tortillas. We initially tried it with the corn tortillas but the flavors were so delicate that we felt they got lost with the corn tortillas. We used flour tortillas the next time we made it and they were perfect!

    My husband and I truly enjoyed this! The pork was SO tender, and the pineapples were so juicy, and paired excellent with the smoky chipotle flavor of the pork. I will DEFINITELY make this again!! The only thing I will do differently is make more salsa!! It disappeared too fast! I also used flour tortillas, but only because I forgot to get the corn tortillas at the store. Flour was delicious!!

    These were awesome! Did it exactly as written, but I added a little feta and sliced avocado to the finished tacos.

    My family really liked this meal. I thought the pork was ok but the salsa gave it the kick. I think next time I'll just cook the pork and put the salsa on top. Less expensive and still great taste. Also, it was surprisingly filling. I was a little worried we wouldn't be able to stick to the serving size/calorie budget. No need to worry!

    I was a bit disappointed in this, though I will say I didn't follow the recipe to a T. I mixed all of the pork ingredients together and made more of a paste. Since I don't have a grill, I chopped the loin in pieces and then tossed with the paste and let sit for about 30 min. It was quite spicy--my husband was actually sweating eating it!--but didn't have as much flavor as I thought it would. The salsa was just "ok"--again, I don't have a grill, so just heated it in a pan. I think grilled pineapple would have tasted a bit better. Perhaps I was doomed to begin with as I was envisioning this to taste like the tacos al pastor at my fave Tex Mex joint back home in Texas.

    We loved these! Easy to make, and a delicious blend of flavors. One of the more authentic Mexican cuisine recipes I've found!

    We enjoyed this recipe, but the corn tortillas didn't hold up well to all the liquid the pineapple produces. They fell apart while eating and we ate immediately after assembly at table. Maybe with flour tortillas it would be 4 stars. The flavor was good, but I would prefer the pork more spicy or more chipotle. We would give it another try with some changes.

    Excellent. Prepped pork a couple hours prior to grilling, coated with rub, rolled in plastic wrap (like a log) and put in fridge. Made salsa to recipe except (using a tip from CL's pineapple salsa in the June 2011 issue) brushed the cored pineapple slices with a blend of 1tbs oil & 1tbs honey and grilled in advance so they'd have time to cool. Served CL's baked black beans with chorizo as side.
