On this Labor Day weekend I hope your plans that involve family, friends, sunshine and very little time in the kitchen. Of course if you are having people over you will probably be expected to feed them some type of food…..and it might as well be delicious!
For today’s activities I have whipped up a batch of my Shredded Pork and Grilled Pineapple Tacos to feed my friends. I love this recipe for parties because it is so fresh and delicious yet it is super easy. You can make most of the components the day before then let guests assemble their own tacos when it is time to eat. Another added bonus of this recipe is that if you have any vegetarian-minded guests they can easily skip the pork and still have delicious black bean and grilled pineapple tacos to enjoy.
The secret to my easy breezy tacos is using slow cooker pork. I cook the pork the day before nice and slow in the slow cooker, then shred with a fork and store in the fridge over night. A quick reheat in the microwave and you are ready to go.
The only part I definitely do right before I am ready to serve is adding the avocado to the black bean salad. If you cut up the avocado the day before it will turn brown. It is fine to eat it of course, but it just doesn’t look as fresh and appetizing on your plate.
Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! Hope you have a stress free and delicious holiday!
