Chili Lime Tacos With Fresh Pineapple Salsa

What better way to enjoy spring break than by celebrating #TacoTuesday? This recipe can be enjoyed [rather deliciously we might add ; )] as tacos, but it can also easily be transformed into a burrito bowl by serving it over rice, a taco salad over a bed of greens, or maybe even breakfast tacos — the world is your oyster. ; )
