  1. To a food processor or blender add minced garlic, lime juice, paprika, adobo peppers, pineapple juice, 1/2 cup pineapple chunks and white vinegar. Blend until completely smooth.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower and season with salt and pepper. Cook until cauliflowers are tender and have started to brown, about 10 minutes.
  3. Pour sauce over cauliflowers, add remaining 1 cup pineapple chunks and stir to combine. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped cilantro.
  4. Remove cauliflower from heat and build your tacos! Divide cauliflower among the tortillas, top with diced onion, more cilantro and lime juice. Serve and enjoy!
