We're kind of taco fiends around here. I can't think of a time in the past decade that we haven't had soft taco shells and a variety of fixings at the ready. Early on we played it safe with your basic taco seasoning and standard toppings, but in recent years we've been getting more and more adventurous. Okay, mostly it's me. I mean my husband totally eats (and loves) the funky combinations I make (usually), but left to his own devices he would probably eat plain chicken breast six days out of seven. I love him, but there's a good reason I do the food blogging.
This Bacon Pineapple Pulled Pork Taco was inspired by Hawaiian pizza - and the leftover pork in my fridge that absolutely needed to be used. (Just keeping it real). Regardless of why I made it, we're all pretty glad I did. Because, yummmmmmm.
It's really important that you put the ingredients down in the correct order so your tastebuds are properly sensitized. Haha. Not really. just toss them in - they taste good together, that's why we're stuffing it all into a taco!
Baaaaacon. Mmmmmm. I very, very, very strongly suggest including one long well cooked slice of bacon to each taco as opposed to a handful of bacon crumbles. By doing this you give it great crunchy texture and ensure that every single bite along the way has some of that delicious bacon flavor.
My girlfriend, Elaine, made me a really delicious home-made barbecue sauce, so that's what I put on ours, but you can use whatever barbecue sauce you love! Canned pineapple will work in a pinch, but if you can swing the fresh stuff you'll be glad you did.

We used Wright® Brand Naturally Smoked Apple Wood Bacon because - well, because it's what we almost always use! I can't tell you how excited I am to be working with Wright®! I love all the brands I work with, but this bacon holds a special place in my heart. We get our Wright® Brand Bacon at Publix and adore that it comes in 1.5 pound packages and is always thick and evenly cut.
With 5 kids, we go through bacon quickly, so the large package is much appreciated. I always "fry" our bacon in the oven, so the even cutting is important to ensure that all the bacon is done cooking at the same time.
Bonus, at Publix from 3/17 – 3/28 ONLY Wright® Brand Bacon will be $7.99 instead of $9.99, Save $2.00 INSTANTLY on Wright® Brand Bacon.
