I love tacos. My Father in law jokes that he has never met such a white Mexcian because my husband and I LOVE Mexican. It’s our favorite. I decided we could put a spin on our love for Mexican food and branch out and experiment with other flavors. These slow cooker Hawaiian Chicken Tacos are fabulous and the Pineapple Orange Salsa on top just takes the cake!
