These tacos combine three of the classic Hawaiian food stuffs: pineapple, cashew nuts, and pork. (All that's missing is Kona coffee and some Spam.) You'll whip these together in less than fifteen minutes, but it'll taste like something that took you ten hours on a plane to get to enjoy. Tip: Easiest way to remove jalapeño stems and seeds: remove ends, then hold upright. Carefully slice the pepper into four pieces, leaving stem and seed to discard.
