Given my obsession with tacos, they were the first thing on my list to try out my fresh batch of cochinita pibil . I decided to keep things nice and simple and I went with some freshly homemade Mexican pickled red onions a super hot roasted habanero salsa , some queso fresco and some cilantro. Just like the cochinita pibil was marinated in sour orange juice so to were the Mexican pickled red onions which added an amazing freshness to the tacos with the help of the cilantro. Since the marinade for the cochinita pibil did not have any chili heat in it I needed a spicy salsa to bring in some heat and I figured that habanero salsa would do the job perfectly well. If you want some help taming the heat of the habanero salsa, some creamy refried beans would fit the bill and make an excellent addition to these tacos.
