Chipotle Pineapple Chicken TacosThursday, July 05, 2012
This week's #TacoTuesday recipe is bursting with the flavors of smoky chipotle peppers and sweet pineapple. Imagine "Hawaiian meets Mexican BBQ" and you'll understand why I'm excited about this one. It all came about rather organically as I honestly just set out to make a traditional shredded chicken taco and a straightforward slaw. But true to form, I changed gears at the last minute after opening the fridge and remembering I had tons of fresh pineapple leftover from Sunday's salsa. I'll walk you through the process, just keep in mind you really don't need any exact measurements here for the seasonings. I gave my best estimates but just go with the flow, taste your food as you go along and add more of what you like and less of what you don't. Learn to enjoy the process of cooking! If you're cooking for just one or two people, I would suggest halving the recipe, or saving half of the shredded chicken (prior to saucing) for use in other dishes like soups, salads or sandwiches.
