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. 🙂
[email protected]: These topping would be amazing on pizza as well!
It looks so delicious and so easy to make.
I am going to try to cook them on Sunday for my family.
So it's a cold, rainy day here. We REALLY don't want to go to the store, but don't have any pineapple – what do you think about replacing them with pears?
I'm a big fan of nachos. This one looks quite different to my "normal" recipe. Since we all love pineapple in my family I think I'd better try making this. Thanks for sharing it. Looks delicious.
This looks good and delicious to try. Thanks for the suggestion of recipe.
