    Do you prefer a red or a green, mild or hot, and do you serve them with pina?

      I prefer a red salsa on the hot side. I put pina in the marinade but it blends into the marinade not in chunks in the recipe.

        I have a cup of delicious red picante from 'my' taco truck on weekends; I just took a dab. I'll snag the recipe when I get my al pastor tomorrow. I like little slices of pina with mine, and lots of cilantro. And now they include grilled onions. Heaven on weekends with great tacos for a buck a throw!

          I went today for my al pastor fix. Their sauce is chiles de arbol, roma tomatoes, grilled onions, and salt, all pureed. I didn't get the quantities of each, I think they just wing it. Good sauce, though, and yes, it is on the hot side.

            I will give it a try. I have been trying a bunch of hot sauces for al pastor and lots of them heve some kind of acid which goes well with the tacos. I will give this one a shot.
