Tacos Al Pastor

I've had this recipe pinned on my Pinterest account for a long time now.  I finally made it! Once again, while I was searching for healthy, yummy recipes I came across this recipe again.  This was so, so easy to make!  Seriously, you cut up the pork, throw it in a large baggy and refrigerate until you're ready to throw it all into a frying pan to cook.  While that's cooking you heat up the tortillas! So, so easy! And they taste amazing! It sweet and spicy! Seriously, you will not be disappointed.  
Who else loves tacos as much as I do? I L.O.V.E them!

Toss all the ingredients in a bag and refrigerate up to 24 hours.

Fry in oil until cooked through.

Serve in tortillas and top with desired toppings. I chose diced onions and homemade guac!
