BBQ Chicken and Grilled Pineapple Nachos

BBQ Chicken and Grilled Pineapple Nachos
Today I have some game day snacking BBQ chicken and grilled pineapple nachos for you! These nachos are super easy to make and they are just packed with flavour! The sweet, spicy and smoky BBQ chicken and tangy grilled pineapple combo is such a nice one and it only gets better when you serve it covered in ooey gooey melted cheese on top of convenient finger food tortilla chips! You pretty much just need to grill up some pineapple, toss it onto some tortilla chips along with BBQ sauce laden shredded chicken, spicy jalapenos, onions and plenty of cheese before throwing it all into the oven to melt the cheese. I like to use candied jalapenos when I have them on hand but I also use pickle jalapenos or even fresh jalapenos. These nachos are pretty perfect for munchies to snack on while watching football and I'll admit to making them for a quick dinner every once in a while!

This is an easy and delicious snack. I definitely like a lot of cheese on it. It should be really good for making pizza with this combination too. :)
