It is hot outside so we are trying to use our grill instead of our stove or oven. Of course, I break the rules to bake cookies, but I can’t help myself. I NEED cookies:)

Josh is the grill master at our house. He is always grilling up something tasty! His latest and greatest recipe are these Grilled BBQ Chicken and Pineapple Tacos.

Josh used Old El Paso’s Stand ‘n Stuff Soft Tortilla Shells to make the tacos. We love these hand held taco shells. All of the taco toppings fit nicely inside!

Josh stuffed the taco shells with grilled BBQ chicken, grilled pineapple, bacon, red cabbage, cheese, and jalapeño slices. He left the jalapeño slices off of Caleb’s taco. Caleb isn’t ready for spicy yet:)

Grilled BBQ Chicken and Pineapple Tacos are loaded with flavor and the perfect taco for grilling season!

Yield: 6 Tacos

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 8 oz)
  • 1 cup BBQ Sauce
  • 1 ripe medium pineapple, cut into spears
  • 6 strips cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 2 jalapeños, sliced
  • 1 cup chopped purple cabbage
  • 6 Old El Paso Stand ‘n Stuff Soft Taco Shells or flour or corn tortillas
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Place chicken breasts and BBQ sauce in a large Ziploc bag. Make sure the BBQ sauce is coating the chicken. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Place chicken on grill. Grill chicken, without turning, for about 6 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chicken. Flip and grill until cooked through, or a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of meat registers 160 degrees, about 6 to 10 minutes more.
  3. While the chicken is grilling, grill the pineapple. Place the pineapple spears on the grill and turn them every few minutes until all sides are grilled and pineapple is tender.
  4. Remove chicken and pineapple from grill. Let cool to room temperature. Chop the chicken and pineapple into bite size pieces.
  5. Place chicken, pineapple, bacon, cheese, jalapeño slices, and cabbage into Stand ‘n Stuff Soft Taco Shells. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
