Easy Tacos Al Pastor Recipe: The Ultimate Mexican Street Tacos Recipe for Taco Night

Tacos al pastor are Mexican street tacos at their finest. The pineapple starts to break down the meat as it marinates, leaving it juicy and tender. You'll be hooked at the first bite! 

If you’re a crunchy taco person, serve in crunchy shells instead of tortillas. Either way, you'll have a delicious, authentic taco night
