Pineapple and high temperatures were made for each other, and this recipe concentrates the flavors with a quick skillet roast. That said, if the weather is nice, an outdoor grill will do the job just as well. Mixed with the right amount of pepper to give a Southwestern kick, this sweet, spicy combination is especially tasty on warm tortilla chips.
