  1. Cut the pineapple lengthwise into 8 wedges. Place the wedges into a sealable plastic container or sealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, stir together the cilantro, tequila and chipotle. Pour into the container with the pineapple. Cut lemon and lime in half, squeeze out some juice and put the juice and fruit into the container. Season with salt and pepper. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour, turning pineapple once.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat. When the coals are hot, brush a light coating of oil on the grate.
  3. Grill wedges for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side. If you like you can make a sauce by cooking the marinade in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until the sauce is thick and syrupy. It will be very spicy!

I use half the powdered chipotle pepper. It will be hot enough, and still very enjoyable.

I think it actually tasted better when I had to use dried cilantro.

I made this as written and it was pretty good. I thought it held the spice more than it did the rest of the marinade. It was so simple and interesting that I want to make the sauce next time an...

We love spicy foods, and found this far too hot to enjoy with that much chipotle.

I love grilled fruit and I love tequila, but this combination of sweet and spicy just didn't work for me...sorry. I was better off just grilling the pineapple by itself and drinking the tequila!

I doubled the amount of pineapple, tequila and juice. Used only 1 c of cilantro and 3/4 T chipotle powder. The spicy lovers thought it was perfect, but I will only use 1/2 T of chipotle next t...

I love grilled pineapples and this was a nice change in marinade. (Usually use soy and/or ginger based marinades). Enjoyed it.
