I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that pizza is my favorite food. But did you know that quesadillas are my second favorite food? I suppose that should come as no surprise since I’m pretty sure that quesadillas are pizza’s cousin. I mean, whatever you can put on a pizza, you can stuff inside a quesadilla!
And on the subject of favorite foods…one of my favorite fruits is pineapple. It’s hard to believe that underneath that prickly stem and tough skin is a juicy, delicious, and sweet fruit.
Have you ever tried grilled pineapple? If not, you really should. The heat of the grill caramelizes the pineapple just a little to make it even sweeter! And since you’re probably already familiar with grilled chicken, why not kill two birds with one stone and grill both the pineapple and the chicken at the same time!
This recipe is the perfect summertime meal. There is no need to use your oven. Just grill the chicken and pineapple on the grill, slice them once they are cooked, throw it in between two tortillas, and grill it up!
You’ll notice I sliced my pineapple a little on the thick side so it was falling out of my tortilla. However, I really didn’t care since this tasted so dang good! Of course, any meal with some sweet fruit inside is always a favorite with the kids too. By the way…I didn’t add the jalapeno to their quesadilla 😉
So, the next time you’re dying of heat and don’t want to turn on your oven, grill up some Grilled Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas!
