With Caramelized Pineapple Chipotle
Sweet and juicy pineapple will sizzle and brown to become the star of these summer tacos since my love for tacos remains unchanged, and these tacos are as delicious as ever.
This hearty taco recipe features spicy roasted sweet potatoes, black beans for protein, and a pretty spectacular caramelized pineapple chipotle.
Once caramelized, you’ll pile it high on corn tortillas alongside tender roasted sweet potato, cilantro black beans, and crunchy slaw and you have a well-balanced fall dinner!
I’ve made these several times now and there are never any leftovers. Yum!
The result is a 30-minute lunch or dinner that’s both satisfying, savory and sweet, and seriously healthy.
