fresh pineapple, peeled and cored
chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 tablespoons
ground chipotle chiles
salt and pepper to taste
I got great reviews on this recipe it was easy to make, visually pleasing and very spicy. Loved it.
I think it's a decent recipe and something different for sure. That said I used half the amount of chipotle pepper and had people who felt it was too spicy. I served the warm pineapple with vanilla bean ice cream and put raw sugar on the pineapple as it grilled. I personally liked it, but could see where it could be either love it or hate it and alot not in the middle. My personal opinion for a more crowd pleasing version is skip the chipotle and follow instructions. As you put on the grill sprinkle with Raw sugar and maybe a little bit of cinnimon and serve warm over vanilla bean ice cream. I like spicy but some people don't
This was very creative, but it did not come out well. The pineapple tasted too much like tequila and not in a good way.
I think it actually tasted better when I had to use dried cilantro.
I use half the powdered chipotle pepper. It will be hot enough, and still very enjoyable.
I made this as written and it was pretty good. I thought it held the spice more than it did the rest of the marinade. It was so simple and interesting that I want to make the sauce next time and try using that and the pineapple as the base for a main dish. Edit 2/6/13: I ran out of chipotle and had to sub for half with ancho chile powder. I think I preferred it like this. Regardless, we really enjoy this recipe.
We love spicy foods, and found this literally inedible with that much chipotle.
I love grilled fruit and I love tequila, but this combination of sweet and spicy just didn't work for me...sorry. I was better off just grilling the pineapple by itself and drinking the tequila!
