Jerk Pork with Pineapple Salsa
Hey Chileheads, you might be tempted to do a whole Jalapeno, but don’t.
You want a cooling, citrus-y accompaniment, not heat. I made the mistake of adding a whole Jalapeno, and it was too hot. Especially along with the heat of the Jerk seasonings on the meat.
Also, go easy on the white onion, as that particular onion packs it’s own heat.

  1. Buddah, one whole jalapeno is probably too hot for regular folk, not us chileheads, and this salsa was probably created with the weak palette in mind.

  2. I got that, but I thought Brian designed the recipe, and well I thought he could handle more. Wazzup wit dat my Postal Brutha?

    1. You can get some good stinging heat from jalapenos, esp when you’re buying them from the local grocer, and so not knowing what you’re getting.

      I repeat that this salsa should be a nice compliment to the spicy jerk seasoning, and so, even tho a chilehead myself, I didn’t care for the heat a whole jalapeno brought to this salsa.

      I found this recipe online.

  3. I love pineapple salsa, and this might be worth trying. Although, I will tweak the jalapeno for jalapeno hot sauce, which I love using in my salsa and buddahmole. I tried making p-napple salsa last year and I am not sure if it was too sweet or not. Too watery in the end for sure.

  4. Great recipe! My wife and I made some last night. The pineapples combine with the cilantro to give it a cool refreshing taste on a hot Summer day. I put 1 and a half jalapenos in there to give it some decent heat. Had I had a fresh cayenne or two I would have put them in too. Chopped fresh cayennes would add more heat and some nice color to the dish.
