    After reading so many great reviews, I was disappointed with these tacos. They were bland, and very watery - the liquid made such a mess of the tortillas! I should have used less salsa, and added taco seasoning.

    This was good. I think I will add chicken next time.

    I would make this again, but I would add chicken or steak.

    We had to add taco seasoning to balance out the pineapple. What are unsweetened pineapple tidbits? Not our favorite, but interesting idea.

    This recipe was very simple and easy to make. It was absolutely delicious and a great modification to a typical taco recipe. My roommates and I really enjoyed it! It is definitely a keeper!

    When I made this for my husband, he immediately balked about it being meatless. Until he tried it. He loved it!

    I was pleasantly surprised. I thought this was a pretty healthy recipe that tasted great. I think the chunks of pineapple is what really made this recipe taste great. I definitely will make again in the future.
