  1. Lovely presentation!

  2. This looks super delicious! I love how colourful these tacos are! 🙂

  3. Your directions never mention when to add in the BBQ sauce. Is it cooked in it, broiled in it, or added after?

      Good catch! I fixed it in the recipe. You can add the BBQ sauce after the porotbellos are done cooking!

  4. Look at those beautiful colors, absolutely adorable!
