This leftover Ham Taco recipe are for those who have a bunch of leftover ham that they don’t know what to do with. I hope this provides some much needed information. The recipe covers everything you are looking for in a taco, sweetness, saltiness and heat. It is very delicious.
This year was a weird Easter for all of us I’m sure. We were away from family and friends due to the quarantine and we had this 10 pound ham. So my husband and I decided to cook it anyway. Man do we have tons of leftovers. For the first couple of days I made some delicious Puerto Rican rice to go with the ham and today we’ve decided to make tacos. Once we assembles everything together, we knew we were on to something. The flavors of sweet, salty and spicy all coming together really is what makes these tacos so good!
As a bonus we made a blended Pineapple-Habanero salsa to go with these tacos, but any spicy, fruity salsa will do.
Then you can re-heat your ham and your ready to assemble. So easy!

- Pineapple (fresh or frozen will do)
