      try to cook adobo with pineapple.. it tastes good, because pineapple balances the sweet and sour flavor of your adobo :)

      One of the things I love about adobo is the thousand and one ways to cook it. Somewhat like chili in Texas, everyone has their own family recipe and swears it is the best. :-)

      Never heard it done with pineapple before, though.
