Tacos al Pastor Tu Madres Cantina

While Mexican food tends to air on the heavier side with refried beans and cheesy enchiladas, the Tacos al Pastor offers a flavorful, yet lighter approach to the traditional. Savory shredded pork coupled with the sweetness of caramelized pineapple chunks give these tacos a unique piquancy, while the pickled red onion and crispy leeks work to round out the flavor, adding a nice crunch.
