Ingredients

  • 1 pineapple sliced

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup BBQ Sauce
  • non stick cooking spray
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • ¼ cup jalapeno pepper sliced

Instructions

  • Grill your pineapple by cutting it into slices, sticking it on skewers and grilling over low heat.  Cut into smaller, bite sized pieces and set aside. 
  • Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper and place on a grill or pan on medium heat. Grill or cook on both sides until done, brushing with barbecue sauce. Remove from heat and cut into thin strips or small pieces and set aside. 
  • Warm griddle over medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place tortillas on griddle, sprinkle on shredded cheese (1/2 cup per quesadilla), chicken, pineapple and jalapeno slices.
