SPAM & Pineapple Tacos #AD

Just as we thought we were getting back to some sort of normality, lockdown fever has set in again and the stockpilers are out in force buying up all the toilet rolls, pasta and tinned tomatoes. I'm pretty sure many of them have still got a cupboard full from earlier in the year, along with a year's supply of flour & yeast, but each to their own with their crazy behaviour. Thankfully this recipe doesn't include any of those ingredients, so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding everything you need to make these tacos. They're easy enough to make, and quantities can be easily adjusted depending on how many people you're feeding. This recipe makes 6, which fits perfectly with the current "rule of 6", although you'll have to take the word of the husband and 11 year old that these taste great, as my eldest taste tester has gone off to uni, the middle one is now vegetarian (although she did have a vegetarian version & loved the flavours), and I'm experiencing altered & diminished taste following a bout of the dreaded Covid in March. It's not what you want when you're a food blogger, but it could be worse. Thankfully I have a family of willing volunteers when it comes to trying out new recipes, and it doesn't stop me eating, especially spicy food!

SPAM & Pineapple Tacos

The fresh pineapple salsa works really well with the SPAM Chopped Pork & Ham, which is coated in a spicy taco seasoning and sizzled in a pan. The soft mini tortilla's are the perfect size for taco's, and easy for little hands to hold, if you're feeding the family. They can be made up before serving, or let everyone put their own taco's together at the table. As an optional extra you could add a drizzle of sour cream or yogurt, and a sprinkling of grated cheese, but we think the creaminess of the avocado is enough here.
