  • 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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Remove chicken and pineapple from grill. Let cool to room temperature. Chop the chicken and pineapple into bite size pieces.
  • 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.
