Spicy Pork Tacos with Black Bean & Kiwi Salsa

This is absolutely one of my favorite recipes that I’ve ever posted on Cooking in Red Socks. I feel like for a Jewish girl that grew up with no pork in her house, this recipe is quite an accomplishment. It represents everything I love about cooking and combining flavors. The Spicy Pulled Pork is meaty, spicy, and fatty. The acidity and sweetness from this salsa recipe complement those flavors in a big, bad way. This. Recipe. Is. So. Good.  It belongs on a restaurant menu. I’m not one to brag too much about my recipes, but seriously. Everyone must eat these tacos or they haven’t really lived life to the fullest.
